Rail Tour at Highworth with a GW Dock Tank
View southward, towards Swindon, on the occasion in April 1954 when the Railway Correspondence & Travel Society ran a Tour from London (Victoria) to Swindon Works, with an ancillary trip up the Highworth Branch, which had been closed to passengers on 2/3/53 - to goods on 6/8/62. The 0-6-0 Dock Tank, No. 1366 (built 1934, withdrawn 1/61), was normally employed at Swindon Wagon Works. (Note the typical Railway Enthusiasts).
