E1 0-6-0T, W2 -'Yarmouth' at Haven Street.
A recreation of a long-lost Island locomotive at Haven Street on June 24th 2013. There were four E1s sent to the Isle of Wight in the 1930s, but the last was withdrawn in 1960. This E1 was sold by the Southern Railway to Cannock Colleries in 1927 but eventually was preseved on the East Somerset Railway. Exchanged for Ivatt 2-6-0 46447, the E1 arrived at Haven Street in October 2012.
