2550 1936-10-18 Oxford Station Yard

Great Western Railway Dean '2301' or 'Dean Goods' class 0-6-0 No. 2550. Built at Swindon in Sept. 1897 and withdrawn from GWR service in Mar. 1940. Transferred to the War Dept., shipped to France and latterly sold to China in 1947. Eventual fate unknown. Very few locomotive classes had such a chequered history as the legendary 'Dean Goods' 0-6-0s. Perhaps only Robinson's 'O4' design for the Great Central is a true rival. 2550 is seen at Oxford Station Yard in October 1936. The steeple of St. Barnabas C of E church (1869) is NOT a boiler modification!
