Class 02, 0-4-4T, Number 24-'Calbourne' at Haven Street.0 viewsSole survivor of the class, Number 24-'Calbourne', stands in the loco depot yard at Haven Street on the 13th July 2011. Calbourne & No.31-'Chale', were retained after the end of BR steam on the Island in 1966, for use on electrification engineering trains. Whilst Calbourne was saved for preservation in 1967, Chale was not so fortunate. Despite an 11th hour attempt to halt its scrapping at St Johns Road, the £900 could not be raised, and consequently the loco slipped away.
