Having entered service as No. 71 Wapping, in June 1901 the locomotive was relegated to the L&BSCR 'duplicate list' as 671, during which time it was hired to a contractor, W. Rigby, for construction work on the Sheppey Light Railway. At the beginning of 1905, 671 was sold to the K&ESR, and the locomotive was renamed as No. 5 Rolvenden. Having been worked hard, Rolvenden was withdrawn in 1932, its parts being stripped to maintain No. 3 Bodiam.

A liitle gem
Like many I have an old terrier and putting that still quite nice model against this really shows the effort that has gone into this new tooling. Everything is finer the brake rods the valves and there is a proper cab as well. Also the old model has an over-sized boiler to fit the motors at the time. So retooling is much more than skin deep with Hornby. You notice this because Rolvenden is so quiet even out of of the box and also so smooth a low speeds. I have the DCC version and again I can tell you fitting a decoder into the old one was a tight squeeze. Thanks Hornby and keep them coming
