PECKETT 0-4-0 SADDLE TANK 1788 "KIlMERSDON” 

Built in 1929 in Bristol "Kilmersdon” is a typical small industrial shunting engine which spent its working career at the colliery of the same name in North Somerset, becoming the last steam engine to work in industry in the county. Today it is the care of the Somerset and Dorset and Railway Trust at Washford and is usually steamed to give shunting demonstrations during Gala events.
