The Militray Engine
The Great Western Class43xx locomotive 5322 was built as one of a batch of 20 in 1917 and then sent to Europe for the closing stages of World War 1 to haul people and freight from the Port of Calais to the Railheads at the front. 5322 has been restored to her 1917 condition with a Khaki paint finish and the ROD number on the tender. ROD standing for the Railway Operating Division of the War Office.
After running on the branch line for the day 5322 was stabled in the shed for the evening photoshoot.
