GWR 813 taking on water
GWR 813 taking on water
The Port Talbot Railway & Docks Company acquired this little beauty in 1901. Renumbered 813 in 1923 when the PTR & D became part of the GWR, she returned to traffic in 2016 and at the age of 116 she was doing today what she was built for. As part of the Peep Behind the Scenes event 813 shunted a group of restored GWR goods wagons, much to the delight of the watching families and enthusiasts. This was thirsty work and she needed a visit to the water crane.
