30587 was originally numbered 298 by the LSWR, the locomotive initially worked at Nine Elms in London, the class having proved itself capable of handling the heavy loads and high speeds demanded of them. However, with the arrival of larger locomotives, the class members were transferred to sheds outside the London area. 30587 was originally scheduled for scrapping in the early 1890s as part of the LSWR modernisation of London and suburban services but 30587 was transferred to the Bodmin and Wadebridge Railway in June 1895 where it arrived at by sea as at that time the line had no connection to the LSWR. 30587 was fitted with a new boiler and square cab in 1889. In 1921 30587 was fitted with another new boiler and in 1933 it had a new front end and chimney. 30587 was withdrawn from service in December 1962 after completing an amazing 1,289,348 miles whilst running!
