Steam Engine at Poplar DLR

In June 2022 the Terrier Trust brought one of their steam locomotives “Poplar” to visit Poplar DLR train maintenance depot to mark it’s 150th birthday. “Poplar” is an 0-6-0 Terrier class tank engine and is a sister of “Stepney” who appears in the Thomas the Tank Engine books.

The steam engine was built by the LB&SCR (London Brighton and South Coast Railway) in 1872 and visited London as part of a National Lottery funded school education project. “Poplar” can normally be found pulling trains on the Kent & East Sussex Railway.
