Sentinel 0-4-0 No. 6515 Isebrook

Isebrook Returns to Quainton Road


A "new" arrival in the down yard is a Sentinel loco that was restored at Quainton by Alan Bolton. She arrived at Quainton on her first period of residence on 31st May 1972 and was restored over the subsequent 7 years, steaming for the first time in preservation in August 1979. Isebrook left Quainton for the Isle of Wight on 31st May 2001. From the Isle of Wight she went to the Lavender Line before returning to Quainton in June 2008. The little black 4 wheeler has been purchased by Peter Mitchell and is expected to operate in the Down Yard in due course.
