History:

The second engine used on the railway, and the first of three to be named Clevedon. Originally named Bradford and built for T A Walker's Manchester Ship Canal contract. Due to tight curves on the transfer siding at Clevedon, it was run as a 2-4-0T i.e. the front pair of connecting rods were removed. Wheels were 3ft 3in diameter. Bought second-hand, this loco was only used for about six months, being replaced by the second Clevedon, the Sharp Stewart B2 2-2-2WT, to which it is believed its nameplate was transferred.
