'Alpha' 1969-03-28 Sittingbourne
The oldest of the Bagnall 0-6-2Ts at Sittingbourne. Built 1932 by W G Bagnall to the ‘Baretto’ design of 0-6-2 originated by Kerr Stuart. (WB 2472/1932). The locomotive still exists and may be brought back into service but almost the entirety requires replacement (including tanks and boiler) so it would be a lengthy and expensive renewal. Seen here at Sittingbourne 28th March 1969.
