SLS: Star Special 9/9/56
Churchward Star class 4-6-0 No. 4056 Princess Margaret at Severn Tunnel Junction. This tour was slightly different from its equivalent a year previously behind 4061 as, although this also started and ended at Snow Hill, it didn't go directly to Swindon but included visits to Hereford and STJ sheds en route. 4056, built at Swindon in July 1914, was the last of the class in BR service and was withdrawn from Swansea Landore shed in October 1957. No. 4003 Lode Star has mercifully survived to this day albeit as a stuffed and mounted exhibit.
