LCGB: The Somerset and Dorset Rail Tour 30/9/62
GWR Churchward 4700 class 2-8-0 no. 4707 is in place to haul the last leg of this tour from Bristol temple Meads to Paddington but the intention to send 4707 to her home shed of Southall was thwarted by a hot box
and so replacement motive power in the form of Hawksworth County 4-6-0 no. 1007
County of Brecknock
was used from Didcot onwards. 4707 survived the ordeal and was eventually withdrawn whilst allocated to Old Oak Common in May 1964.
