1007 1961-11 Reading

Ex-Great Western Railway Hawksworth 'County' class 4-6-0 No. 1007 'County of Brecknock'. Built at Swindon in Dec. 1945 and withdrawn in Oct. 1962. What a stirring sight this is of 1007 at Reading in November 1961. It conveys in one superb photograph, the impossibility of any diesel image achieving the same drama. The relatively unusual event of a 'County' hauled freight on a crisp, sunny day is one to truly savour.
