Ivatt 2-6-2T No 41313 is temporarily leaving its home at Havenstreet and being transported to Cranmore on the East Somerset Railway where it will undergo an extensive rebuild lasting some two years.

An agreement to undertake this work was reached between the Isle of Wight Steam Railway and the East Somerset Railway following the successful rebuild and return to service of Ivatt Mogul 46447, which is on a ten year loan from the IWSR to the Cranmore based railway.

Following the rebuild, 41313 will return to the Island and join sister engine, 41298 that is currently being rebuilt in the locomotive workshops at Havenstreet.
