A nameplate, FRESHWATER, from the London & South Western Railway O2 Class 0-4-4T No 181 built at Nine Elms Works in May 1890. It retained this number in SR days and was despatched to the Isle of Wight in April 1949, one of two O2s sent to the Isle to replace two ex London Brighton & South Coast Railway terriers, one of which was eventually preserved. This loco was renumbered W35 and named after a large village at the western end of the Isle, a perpetuation of the name originally given to one of those terriers and the very first SR name fitted in 1928 when the SR naming was introduced on the Isle. It was withdrawn in October 1966 and cut up on the Isle. Cast brass, length 38½", the front repainted, the back marked with the Clapham Museum accession number.
