On 10th July 2016, at Midsomer Norton South station, on the former Somerset and Dorset main line, a ceremony was held to re-name the Sentinel 4wVBT locomotive. This was performed by well known Antiques Road Show expert and railway author, Paul Atterbury. Now carrying its name Joyce, together with LMS No. 7109, the Sentinel sets off south with a train of invited guests and volunteers. The locomotive, which is the only operational railway locomotive of its type in the world, is already demonstrating an impressive hauling ability despite its diminutive size.
