GWR 4-6-0's - MikeMorant
Powered by SmugMug Log In

An interesting shot I think. Modified ex-GWR Hall class 4-6-0 no. 7914 Lleweni Hall ascends the short but steep climb onto Battledown flyover in 1962 but what attracted me to the shot is the Bulleid 3-car set behind the drawbar and the single indicator lamp at the 12 o' clock position. I'm used to seeing images of GWR 2-cylinder 4-6-0's south of Basingstoke but they are in charge of inter-regional stock. Comments welcome.
I invited comment and got two which are combined here: "This is a Portsmouth - Reading 'B' headcode stopping service"
