An original negative of a GWR Collett 4300 class mogul paired with SR Maunsell stock has been on my 'wants list' for a long time and finally I have this splendid example featuring no. 6366 at Guildford station. 6366 was an 81D Reading engine when this shot was taken on 16/7/57 but she would move to Swindon in February 1958. Further reallocations were to Tredegar, Pontypool Road, Newport Ebbw Junction and finally to Cardiff Canton where withdrawal came in September 1962. Hovering in the background of this shot is Adams 0395 class 0-6-0 no. 30575.
