LSWR Adams B4 0-4-0T No. 99 of 1893 vintage at Bournemouth shed but with no date specified although the presence of the number's 'E' prefix suggests 1935 or earlier. No. 99 survived into the nationalisation era but was withdrawn not soon after in February 1949 whilst still allocated to Bournemouth but there would be life in the old girl yet as she was sold to David R. Zeiler & Co. Ltd. of Cwndn Works in Swansea where the name Dorset was applied. I have no firm date for her demise but Bradley states that she had gone by 1958.
