    I have added a new collection featuring The
    Churchward 2900 Saint Class
    The Great Western Railway 2900 or Saint Class incorporated several series of 2-cylinder passenger steam locomotives designed by George Jackson Churchward and built between 1902 and 1913 with differences in the dimensions. The majority of these were built as 4-6-0 locomotives; but thirteen examples were built as 4-4-2 (but converted to 4-6-0 during 1912/13). They proved to be a successful class which established the design principles for GWR 2-cylinder classes over the next fifty years.
    Just six photos in this collection beginning with this photo from 1908

    Clevedon Court looks like it is at Salisbury and Hillingdon Court at Swindon running shed.

    Can you read what is written near the chimney on the picture of 2954 outside Swindon works? I guess it is something along the lines of "broken bolt here"
