41313 Launch

Ivatt Class 2 2-6-2T No.41313

41313 arrived at the East Somerset Railway in February 2015 looking rather rusty and forlorn but our dedicated workers in the ESR Workshop used their time and skills to overhaul this amazing locomotive and bring it back to full running order.

41313 was launched back into traffic on the 24th June 2017 and it was lovely to see so many people celebrating this historic day with us.

The shining engine hauled passenger trains throughout the day, plus several double headers with Ivatt Class 2 2-6-0 No.46447, which is based at the ESR but also belongs to the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, like 41313.

41313 will remain at the ESR until September and steam with us on selected dates, before returning to the Isle of Wight.

The ESR wishes to thank all of our amazing volunteers for their hard work and giving up their time, it is very much appreciated.

41313 arrives at Cranmore Depot after being transported from the Isle of Wight.

41313 is rostered to operate on the following dates subject to availability:

2nd, 29th and 30th July

26th, 27th and 28th August

10th and 13th September.
