4270 Toddington 15 July 2017

42xx 2-8-0T 4270, pictured inside the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway's Toddington shed on 15 July 2017. 4270 was built at Swindon in 1919, and like most of its class, spent the majority of its life working heavy coal trains in South Wales. It was withdrawn from Cardiff East Dock shed in September 1962. Here it is displaying the Newport Ebbw Junction (NPT) shed code, where it was allocated in the 1940s.
