    Its use at Norwood was a sludge carrier! Went to Barry for scrap before being bought for 'part' preservation. Wheel sets, underframe and axleboxes now at Bluebell Railway.

    the loco at windsor & eton Central looks quite out of place in the station now, a crime the tender was cut - good old roger cruse saved the remains didnt he ??

    i was always taken there by my grandfather when seeing him at slough, he used to tell stories of the incidents at windsor & slough !!

    Last time i went there i was dismayed to see it as shopping mall !!

    to look at windsor in its heyday a lot of carry on films used it - carry on loving is a good one where u get some good views of it
