And Then There Was Four

The latest edition to our locomotive fleet is the Bachmann BR Standard Class 4MT 2-6-4 Tank Nº 80120, Catalogue Nº 32-354A, seen in the two photographs above. She is a late crested version and has been factory weathered and I think she looks very nice!
I picked her up, second-hand, at a recent toy and train fair and, although she is not sound fitted, she has already been fitted with a DCC decoder so that we can run her - and she does run extremely well!
In the first photograph she is seen at Carswater, at the head of a local train, while, in the second photograph, we see her standing below the long footbridge at at Manxton.
This now brings to four the number of steam locomotives that we have in our fleet - all of which are members of classes that were regular performers on the Somerset and Dorset Railway.
