THE TERRIER TRUST

The Terrier Trust is the custodian of two Victorian steam locomotives that can be seen at the Kent & East Sussex Railway.  Almost uniquely in preservation, the pair have spent the majority of their working lives hauling trains on this delightful, rural railway which was associated with "Terriers" before its closure and reinvention as a popular heritage railway.

Locomotives' Long-Term Future Secured

The Trust has concluded new agreements with the K&ESR for both No 3 “Bodiam” and No 32678. The arrangements secure the long-term future of both Terriers and will ensure that both will continue to be a feature of the line on which they have operated since 1901 and 1940 respectively. FULL STORY HERE
