Great news to hear it's been made official, look forward to seeing an old resident Terrier paying a visit, a pity Freshwater won't be present being under overhaul so we can't have all 3 terriers side by side. That said there is always next year, arguably a more fitting anniversary for Terriers to have a get together. Heh as for the row-back I wouldn't be surprised seeing as the IoWSR in some people's eyes is a railway that can do no wrong, being accredited museum status, anything remotely WIBN would be shameful anywhere else but not there. Interested fact I didn't realize till pointed out! Chances are probably was an coincidence but certainly makes you wonder if it was intentional aiming for those two specifically, certainly as a result of their long time serving on the island originally they do have more the pedigree to be based on the island. Same with the KESR's Terrier pair, have long running strong links with the railway there more then anywhere else, so made sense for the heritage railway to have those two desired to be based there. Slightly off topic but I've always been impressed with how the KESR have taken such good care of their Terriers, as well as still viewing them as valuable assets to the day to day operations of their railway in general. Most heritage railways associated with such old and small engines have long since fallen out of favor with them, the bigger and younger engines now the center of priorities and attention, yet not so with the KESR who seem to view their Terriers as still very much integral to their railway. Only the IoWSR give as much care and importance to the older and smaller engines like the Terriers. I once considered the Bluebell in that same category but alas since reaching East Granstead they too seem to have fallen out of favor with their smaller and older locomotives, though fortunately perhaps not entirely as Fenchurch is being overhauled and there also is the gradual restoration of P Class No.27.
