Former LSWR Adams Radial 4-4-2T no. 30583 at Lyme Regis station. This loco was sold out of service to the Bluebell Railway following withdrawal in July 1961. The Bluebell restored 30583 as LSWR 488 and I remember it well as the Bluebell was not a great distance from home in the 1960's and early 70's. However, I've long lost touch with the heritage scene and was disappointed to note from the Bluebell web site that 488 hasn't been active since 1990.
