Really down-at-heel GW 2-6-0 at Newport High Street
Seen in 1946 from the Up main platform on the Down Through line on one of the constant freight trains through Newport is an extreme example of post-war neglect (delayed maintenance): Churchward 43XX 2-6-0 No. 5374 (built 7/19, modified to heavier No. 8374 1/28-7/44, withdrawn 6/48) has lost its brass safety-valve cover.
