Tenterden Terrier

2013 - Kent and East Sussex Railway - Tenterden Town - Ex-LBSCR A1X Terrier - 32670Terrier tank engine’s are fantastic locomotive’s and seeing one in action is always a pleasure.  Tenterden is one of the best places to experience this, with two examples available in working order.  It is no wonder that the Kent and East Sussex Railway named their journal “Tenterden Terrier” in recognition of this.  1872 built 32670 is seen at Tenterden Town with the K&ESR’s vintage Victorian rake of carriages.2013 - Kent and East Sussex Railway - Tenterden Town - Ex-LBSCR A1X Terrier - 32670This particular Terrier tank engine recently featured in a “model of the week article” and created quite a lot of interest.  It’s well worth reading through that article (click here) to find out about it’s 141 year history.

2013 - Kent and East Sussex Railway - Tenterden Town - Ex-LBSCR A1X Terrier - 32670As you can see from the picture above, the K&ESR’s 1940’s weekend looked to be very popular with plenty of visitors.  Unfortunately I did not have enough time to stay for long to experience it properly, but I was very pleased to see that so many who did.

    • I didn’t know of a similar class. Given the success of the terrier’s, it makes sense that there was a precedent. Wainwright’s P class of 1909 was practically a copy, albeit with a slightly longer range. It seems imitation is the most sincere form of flattery in these cases!
