Transport of Delight

Western Region steam

These photographs date from 1959-61 and are of locomotives from the
pre-nationalisation Great Western Railway. Many of these locomotive
views were taken at Swindon Works, which I visited regularly at
this time with the London Branch of the RCTS.

Currently, there are 43 photographs (* 6 recent) in this gallery.
