The EKR opened in 1912 from Shepherdswell to Dover to serve Kent coal fields.
No 5 was ex-LSWR No. 488, (later 0488), built in 1886 by Neilson and Co.
Made redundant by LSWR in 1916, she was the second of the class to be withdrawn.
She was bought by the Government in September 1917 and then worked at Ridham dock near Sittingbourne.
The EKR Loco Register records that she was purchased from the Ministry of Munitions Disposal and Liquidation Commission and delivered to Shepherdswell on April 13 1923.
She was repainted and probably overhauled at least twice during her time at Shepherdswell, the last time in 1935 when amongst other bits she seems to have received a replacement chimney provided by the SR.
Last repaired in 1937.
She was last used on 29 May 1943 but was then kept throughout the war.
In March 1946 the Southern Railway purchased her and after extensive overhaul she went to Lyme Regis
The Bluebell Railway purchased her in July 1961.
