During the Summer of 1962 a Maunsell Schools class 4-4-0 was often rostered for the 10.15 SO Waterloo to the West of England and, according to “Locos of the SR Part 1” / RCTS, on Sat 1/9/62 30925 Cheltenham had the job. With a load of 10 corridors, 30925 arrived at Exeter Central 3 minutes early. It returned to Waterloo on the 11.00 service the following day.
My thanks go to Chris Knowles-Thomas for the above background data which, I have to say, came as a surprise to me.
