82 Boxhill (LBSCR 82 Boxhill, LBSCR 682 & SR 380S)

Boxhill.jpg

82 Boxhill was built at Brighton in 1880 and is the only member of the A1 class preserved in Britain as all of the others were later rebuilt as class A1x locomotives. It does however have a Drummond style chimney rather than the original one. It cost £1,875 to build.

In May 1905 it was converted to a 2-4-0T, for auto-train trials with push and pull trains on the Brighton – Worthing and Brighton Kempt Town lines, but was restored back to a 0-6-0T in September 1912.

It spent many years to Service Stock at Brighton as the shunter at the Locomotive Works where it carried the number 380S.

It was withdrawn in August 1946, having completed 849,914 miles in service, and preserved as part of the National Collection and is now on static display at the National Railway Museum at York.
