This undated but 1930's view features Stroudley/Maunsell E1/R class 0-6-2T no. 2124 at Bideford. The stock it's hauling is a picture in itself with a pair of ex-LBSCR coaches inthe lead augmented by a Maunsell BCK with roofboards showing that it is a Waterloo-Torrington through coach. Barnstaple allocated no. 2124 had been rebuilt from an E1 class 0-6-0T in 1928 and by 1938 would become an Exmouth Junction based loco where it would be rooted until withdrawal in January 1959.
