2014 South Devon Railway - Buckfastleigh - London Transport 57xx L.92 pannier tankFrom the 3rd to 16th August 2015, the Kent and East Sussex Railway will become home to the South Devon Railway’s London Transport liveried pannier tank engine L.92.  This will be the first time a London Transport liveried locomotive has worked on the rural light railway and will therefore no doubt attract many visitors!  To read more about this locomotive please click here to read an article published last year.

The 57xx pannier tank will relieve the strain on the home fleet. Due to the timings of overhauls there is currently a shortage of the railway’s more powerful steam locomotives available for service.  For more information check out the blog (saturdaygang.blogspot.co.uk) or follow the  loco working group on twitter (here.) If you would like to help the line, volunteering information can be found on the K&ESR website here.
