SLS: Farewell to G.W.R. Locos & L&YR 2-6-0s 27/3/66
GWR Collett 5600 class 0-6-2T no. 6697 started the day's proceedings here from platform 1 at Birmingham's Snow Hill station and would haul this leg of the tour to Chester. No. 6697 is still with us today based at the Didcot Railway Centre and is the only preserved member of the class that was rescued directly from BR ownership.
