The Terrier Class A1X locomotive Brighton Works was first known as Morden, and carried the LB&SCR number 35. This locomotive was the first Terrier A1 to enter service in June 1878. The running number was changed several times; first to 635, and then onto 2635 once it became part of the Southern Railway stock in 1922, when it was also upgraded to A1X specification. After the war it was briefly given the numbering 377S and was transferred to departmental duties at Brighton.

It was at this time that it was repainted in Stroudley Improved Engine Green and given the name Brighton Works, with BR(SR) giving the locomotive final numbering of 32635. Brighton Works stayed at Brighton until 1959 when BR decided to return it to general use where it could be seen performing stock movements and shunting at various locations, but never straying too far from the Brighton area.

Towards the end of its life, it was fittingly put into service pulling steam specials around the south eastern region of the BR(SR) network. Brighton Works was retired in March 1963 but sadly did not make it into preservation, and was cut up at Eastleigh the same year.

This limited run model, which is part of the Gaugemaster Collection, is sure to be a popular locomotive not only with 7mm modellers, but also with collectors and fans of the Southern Railway.
