Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway class 7F 2-8-0 number 53809 on the Ludgershall branch, 26 September 1987.

Eleven class 7F locomotives were built in two batches in 1914 (numbers 80 through 85) and 1925 (86 through 90). Through mergers and reorganizations, the locomotives eventually ended up on British Railways as numbers 53800 through 53810. They remained in service until the 1960s; two of them survive in preservation, number 88 (BR number 53808) and 89 (53809).
