The Terrier Class A1X locomotive Brighton Works was first known as Morden and carried the LB&SCR number 35. She was in fact the first Terrier A1 to enter service in June 1878. During her life her running number changed to 635 and then onto 2635 once she became part of the Southern Railway stock in 1922, when she was also upgraded to A1X specification. After the war briefly the Southern gave her the numbering of 377S and transferring her to departmental duties at Brighton.
It was at this time she was then repainted in Stroudley colours and given her name Brighton Works with BR(SR) giving her final numbering of 32635. She stayed at the works until 1959 when BR decided to enter her back into general use where she could be seen performing stock movements and shunting at various locations but never straying too far from the Brighton area.
Towards the end of her life she was fittingly pushed into service pulling steam specials around the south eastern region of the BR(SR) network. She was retired in March 1963 but sadly did not make it into preservation and was cut up at Eastleigh the same year.
This limited run model is sure to be a popular locomotive not only with 7mm modellers in general but also collectors and fans of the SR.
