Steam Loco No 2 (Freshwater), Isle of Wight Steam Railway, U.K

The Isle of Wight Steam Railway is a heritage railway on the Isle of Wight. The railway passes through 5½ miles of unspoiled countryside from Smallbrook Junction to Wootton Station, passing through the small village of Havenstreet, where the line has a station, headquarters and a depot. The railway is owned and operated by the Isle of Wight Railway Co. Ltd. and run largely by volunteers.

Steam Locomotive No 2 – Freshwater built in 1876 has been restored to the livery of Freshwater, Yarmouth & Newport  (FYN) railway. This much traveled engine has crossed the Solent no less than five times since it first came to Isle of Wight in 1913
