The 762 mm gauge Bagnall Meyer 0-4-4-0T locomotive built in 1953 for Bowaters Paper Mills at Sittingbourne, Kent, was not altogether successful. After a short working life it was passed through several ownerships ending up at the Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway where it is being restored as a static exhibit.
