Steam locomotive, London Brighton & South Coast Railway, 0-6-0T No 82, "Boxhill", designed by William Stroudley, built at Brighton in 1880, withdrawn in 1946.
Between 1872 and 1880 William Stroudley produced fifty small tank engines to work the suburban services in South and East London. Despite their small size they worked very hard and were soon nicknamed ‘Rooters’ or ‘Terriers’, the latter becoming almost an official reference in their later years.
Their low weight enabled them to work on some lightly constructed branch lines, and some lasted well into the days of British Railways. Boxhill was restored at Brighton Works in 1947 and is fitted with equipment for condensing the exhaust steam in the water contained in the side tanks.
