Built in 1942 by Peckett & Sons of Avonside Engine Works, Bristol, 'Jeffrey' was one of their 'R' class locomotives. This locomotive last worked at Glenwydd Iron Foundry, Ironbridge, Shropshire in 1962. Latterly it apparently ran without its coupling rods, technically making it a 2-2-0 tank. The rods were found in a shed at the iron foundry prior to its purchase. It was stored at Triad, Bishops Stortford, for some years before its arrival at Chappel in June 1981.

The motion was overhauled, but the boiler needs a heavy repair before the locomotive could be steamed. No.2039 has been tidied up and repainted for static display as a mascot for the East Anglian Railway Museum.
