Tangmere is a  Battle of Britain class 4-6-2 steam locomotive. They were designed by Oliver Bulleid who was the Chief Mechanical Engineer for the Southern Railway.

These air-smoothed locomotives were offen called Spam Cans. This was after the shape of the cans of Spam, sold in the 1950s.

The name Tangmere is after one of the Battle of Britain RAF stations, that was about 3 miles from Chichester in West Sussex.

In the late 1950s some of this class of locomotives were rebuilt. Steam ended on BR, be for Tangmere could be rebuilt.
