Ancient GW Saddle Tank on the 'Dump' at Swindon Works
One of the numerous withdrawn locomotives awaiting scrap at Swindon Works in June 1950 was this survivor of the '850' standard class of 0-6-0T still with its original saddle-tank - but missing its number-plate. No. 2007 was built at Wolverhampton Works in 10/1892 and withdrawn in 12/49.
