Having entered service as No. 71 Wapping, in June 1901 the locomotive was relegated to the L&BSCR ‘duplicate list’ as 671, during which time it was hired to a contractor, W. Rigby, for construction work on the Sheppey Light Railway.
At the beginning of 1905, 671 was sold to the K&ESR, and the locomotive was renamed as No. 5 Rolvenden. Having been worked hard, Rolvenden was withdrawn in 1932, its parts being stripped to maintain No. 3 Bodiam.
Hornby® is a household name and is famous as the UK’s brand leader in the model railway hobby with its high quality 00 gauge (1:76) models and accessories.
