Eastlegh Beer Festival 2002 Logo

This year's glass logo represents Clausentum an 0-4-0 'dock engine' that was a tiny saddle tank of the '0458' class, of which only two were made. They were built in 1890 - twenty years before Eastleigh works began - at the Vulcan Foundry in Lancashire. At just 21 tons this was by far the smallest engine in the whole Southern Railway's stable. With a lifetime spent shunting in the docks at Southampton and being maintained at Eastleigh, 734 was scrapped in the mid forties after loyal service in the Second World War.
