6319 1972-02-26 St Philip's Marsh
St Philip's Marsh had a long history of being used to store withdrawn steam locos, and this would continue through the hydraulics starting with the �Warships� and North British Type 2s. No.6319, in line with Nos.D6328 and 6348, both withdrawn in July 1971, was the last of the class to be overhauled at Swindon emerging on 12 June 1961 and withdrawn at Laira just twelve weeks later in September 1971. On its left, No.D6328 shows the earlier style of blue livery with an old type serif D-prefixed number positioned above the double arrow, whereas Nos.6319 and 6348 have the final serif style without the D-prefix, with the symbol below the number and the TOPS panel below that. No.6319 should have been preserved, but was cut-up after a mix-up between Swindon and Derby, the latter failing to communicate the fact that it had accepted a bid from the late Colin Massingham for the Type 2 which was barely run-in after its General overhaul.
