SOMERSET & DORSET LINE:  LOCOMOTIVES USED

 

The following list details the steam locomotives recorded on the line, based on information currently available to the compiler. Such a list can never be exhaustive but may be of use to modellers who are interested in the locomotives that worked on this route particularly since Nationalisation.

 

Abbreviations: a allocated; ct clearance tests/trial runs; n noted on the line; r reallocated elsewhere; w withdrawn; WW2 World War 2.

Hyphens indicate continuity of allocation.

References to ‘/48’ indicate the loco had been allocated to the shed at a date prior to nationalisation.

B Bath; H Highbridge where distinguished from ‘T’; T Templecombe (including Highbridge sub-shed); BB Bournemouth.
