GWR 1938-built Collett Castle 4-6-0 5076 Gladiator is given the once-over by a very youthful train watcher at Birmingham's Snow Hill station on July 23rd, 1961. The engine was based at 81D Reading at the time and it wouldn't have been strange to see her here as the entire rake of stock on her tail is of Maunsell origin painted in BR(S) corporate green and is almost certainly a Birkenhead - Kent coast inter-regional working.
