LSWR Beattie 2-4-0WT was built by Beyer Peacock in 1874 and is depicted here at Wadebridge shed as Southern Railway No. 3298. Subsequently, 3298 would be renumbered by BR as 30587 and would remain in service until the end of 1962 going out in a blaze of glory partnered with 30585 on two railtours in the south London area in the December of that year. Both locos have survived into the heritage era.
