9F at Shillingstone!
Okay, at the moment it looks more like an old boiler on wheels but rest assured that in the coming years this will become a fully-restored 2-10-0 9F, the most powerful and iconic locomotive that worked on the S&D. It is stored on a couple of track panels just outside of Shillingstone station - the eventual intention is that as a working loco she will visit other lines and also other operating sections of the S&D.
Shillingstone station is being restored by the North Dorset Railway Trust. Their website is www.shillingstonestationproj.fsnet.co.uk.
