A typical GWR suburban train leaving Paddington
A typical GWR suburban train leaving Paddington
View eastward, towards the buffer-stops, with a local train, probably for Slough and Reading, leaving Platform 6, headed by '6100' 2-6-2T No. 6114 (built 9/31): from 1931 until 1960 the whole class of 70 '6100s' worked in the London Division, dominating the suburban services. Just four months since Nationalisation, this engine is still in Great Western livery and lacking a smokebox number-plate. Right over on the left can be a seen an LPTB Underground train on the Hammersmith & City line.
