R3812 / R3812x (DCC fitted) SR A1X Class ‘Terrier’ W10 ‘Cowes’ – Numbered as 69 and named Peckham, the Isle of Wight Central Railway (IWCR) took possession of the locomotive on 18 April 1900 and it retained this combination until 1925, two years after being taken into Southern Railway stock. Repainted into Maunsell Green and given the running number of W10, in October 1928 the locomotive received the name ‘Cowes’ which it retained until May 1936 when it was recalled to the mainland to be stored.
Delivery of these new versions is expected to be January 2020.
