View NW at the junction of the Windsor (Central) branch, off the ex-GW Paddington - Reading etc. main line, towards Reading and Windsor to the right, London to the left. By 1962, many of these powerful 2-6-2Ts had been displaced from their dominance on the Paddington suburban services by DMU, but No. 6167 (built 10/35) was still around. In 1954, at the zenith of this class Slough (BR(WR) code 81B) had 22 '6100's, out of a total allocation of 40 engines, the others being 15 0-6-0T and 3 0-4-2T.
