SLS: Gloucester Sheds and Swindon Works 7/9/58
The prototype GWR Collett Hall class 4-6-0 No. 4900 St. Martin. Very little seems to be known about this railtour but the location is Gloucester.
4900 was rebuilt from Churchward Saint class 4-6-0 no. 2925 back in 1924 and would be the first of the class to be withdrawn whilst in BR service in April 1959 from Old Oak Common mpd.
