O.V.S. Bulleid of the Southern Railway designed this 40 member class during the second World War. They featured revolutionary design features and were built without frills to save on materials and reduce the locomotive weight.
On the August Bank Holiday weekend of 1995, the lone surviving Bulleid Austerity was in service. This photo shows the enclosed cab and the tender filler cap on the right hand side which meant that enginemen could water the locomotive from the station platform without having to climb on the tender top.
