Collett 5600 class 0-6-2T no. 6677 but there's more of interest in this shot than is immediately apparent. I think, despite the fact that the tank side is emblazoned with GWR, that this shot was taken near the end of its service days and is at Pontypool Road shed where it is known that she was allocated in the latter part of 1962 although none of the five databases that I refer to when researching WR material contains any reference to reallocation from Stourbridge Junction during that year but one does state that 86G was where she was to be found after withdrawal on 9/2/63.
