Built in 1872 LB&SCR 71 was named Wapping. By 1900 a number of Terriers were surplus to the companys' needs and (now) 671 was hired out for the construction of the Sheppey Light Railway and in 1905 sold to the Rother Valley Railway, later the Kent & East Sussex Railway. The engine was thoroughly worn out and was set aside in 1932, though not scrapped until 1938, no doubt after all re-usable parts had been removed to keep the K&ESRs' other Terriers running.

The A1 Terrier was built at the Brighton Works under the design of William Stroudley in 1872, and between 1874 and 1880 were primarily employed on London suburban services operated by the LB&SCR.
As the demands placed on the commuter network increased the A1 Terrier were replaced by heavier more powerful tank engines and the Terrier were sold to other private operators to work on branch line and shunting operations. Sixteen of the class were modified between 1911 and 1913 and again in 1919 with a new boiler and extended smokebox plus some other improvements and were classified A1X. The Class survived well into nationalisation with the final Terrier being decommissioned in 1963.
In all 10 Terriers survived into preservation.

The Dapol Terrier features:

  • Finely moulded body with many separately added fine details
  • Cast wheels with fine relief and appropriate colouring
  • Heavy diecast chassis and all wheel pick up
  • NEM pockets as standard
  • Accessory bag with spares and other optional detail.
