The original locomotive

Locomotive No213 "Bessemer" LBSC B3 was built in January 1898, and was a larger version of the B2. It was the only B3-class loco built, being succeeded by the B2x. It was named after Henry Bessemer (1813-1898), who developed an industrial process for mass-producing steel.

The locomotive was designed by Robert John Billinton (1845-1904), and built at Brighton Works.
