Gloucestershire Railway Society: M. & S.W.J.R. Outing 9/5/53
The farewell outing for ex-MSWJR 2-4-0 no. 1336 started at Gloucester Central and logically proceeded thence down the length of the former Midland & South western Junction railway's line to Andover Junction. The return saw 1336 go only as far as Swindon (GWR) whence Dukedog 4-4-0 no. 9023 continued with the train to Gloucester via Kemble and here we see 9023 awaiting departure from Swindon. 9023 was a long term resident at Swindon mpd and would eventual;ly be retired from there in July 1957.
