15 Hailes 24 May 2009

1943 built Hunslet 0-6-0ST 15 heads south past Hailes on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway with the 12:52 Toddington to Winchcombe freight on 24 May 2009, during the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway's 25th anniversary 'Cotswold Festival of Steam'. The loco is wearing the livery of the Wemyss Private Railway, where it worked the extensive colliery lines between 1964 and 1971. Previous to that it had belonged to the Ministry of Defence. It is pictured here on its penultimate working before being named Earl David at Toddington later in the afternoon.
