Steam locomotive moves in Swindon
Three steam locomotives were moved in Swindon on 21 August 2018. Great Western 4-6-0 No. 7819 Hinton Manor was removed from the designer outlet shopping village, returning to the Severn Valley Railway; classmate No. 7821 Ditcheat Manor replaced it in the shopping village, moving around the corner from STEAM museum; and 2-8-0 No. 2818 arrived at the museum from the National Railway Museum at Shildon.

Here we see No. 7819 on a trailer parked beside the former works' buildings. With the locomotive extacted from the shopping village, the trailer in the foreground then reversed in to collect the locomotive's tender.
