Terrier Trust locomotive 32678 is to take part in celebrations to mark the 100th Birthday of the K&ESR locomotive No 376 "Norwegian". The K&ESR's only tender engine was built in 1919 in Sweden for use in Norway and spent some if it's career on snowplough duties within the Arctic Circle including working a line that has a station called "Hell"!
The centenarian will be joined by its older shedmate, No 32678 - currently the line's oldest working locomotive. The overhaul of the 1880-built Terrier, scheduled to start earlier this winter has been postpoed to allow the dimuntive loco to work alongside 376 throughout half term week. Trains will run between Tenterden Town and Bodiam on 16, 17, 19, 20, 21, 23 and 24 February with 32678 working a two-car set of restored Southern Railway coaches dating from the 1930s while 376 will be at the head of a train of carriages originally built for Biritsh Railways in the 1950s.
