Yeo (locomotive)

Yeo was one of three narrow gauge 2-6-2T steam locomotives built by Manning Wardle in 1898 for the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway. Following the railway's closure in 1935 it was scrapped.

Yeo, like all the locomotives on the L&B, was named after a local river with a three-letter name, in this case the River Yeo.

This naming tradition has been continued in the 21st Century, with Lyd (a replica of Lew, the fourth locomotive built to this basic design) operational on the Ffestiniog Railway and the Welsh Highland Railway. It had been intended that Lyd would receive Yeo's original chimney (which survived on a steamroller for 62 years) but it was found to be too corroded for further use.

The naming tradition has also been applied to a Kerr StuartJoffre class locomotive currently running on the revived L&B, which has been named Axe, and a Maffei locomotive named Sid.
