Clun Castle


Taken a good few years ago now the Great Western Region Castle Class engine, 7029 Clun Castle, poses outside the Birmingham railway Museum, Tysley, running up and down the short track at the side of the shed.

We went to Tysley when we lived in Brum in the early 70's. I think it only opens about twice a year now
Les Auld: It did open most sundays when I was there Bill, thanks for the comment.
Lovely old engine, wish you could see more of them in regular action.
Les Auld: Sadly too many were scrapped Linda, thanks for the comment.
Clun was at the GCR when I first moved up to the Loughborough area some 20 years ago if I remember rightly. A great shot Les, and although I am not a GWR fan I must admit it is a fine looking engine.
Les Auld: I do think the Castles are one of the better looking engines Brian, thanks for the comment.
Good one Les..these engines never fail to interest me.
Les Auld: They do have a strange attraction Ron, thanks for the comment.
