47105 Toddington 23 April 1994

47105 Goldcrest sits in Toddington Yard on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway in the company of John Fowler 0-6-0 4240016 on 23 April 1994. The former Tinsley 47 had only arrived at the GWR a couple of weeks previously and is pictured here in its unrestored state, complete with the the unofficial name it acquired on 1989. Very little work was required to make the loco operational and initially the loco ran in the livery shown here, but a repaint into all over rail blue was carried out later in the year.
