3823 1931 Swindon

3823 1931 Swindon

GWR County class 4-4-0 No 3823 County of Carnarvon and one of the earlier members of the class, No 3801 County Carlow, with square drop-ends are being dismantled in Swindon Works scrap yard in 1931.

Peter Kerslake says "3823 is nearest the camera, whilst 3801 is behind, both engines condemned in March 1931. The first to be condemned was 3833 County of Dorset in February 1930 whilst the last to survive was 3834 County of Somerset which lasted until November 1933."
