EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print from the STEAM Museum of the GWR, we are transported back to 1929 at Swindon Works, where Castle Class locomotive No. 4087, affectionately known as Cardigan Castle, takes center stage. Standing tall and proud against a backdrop of industrial prowess, this magnificent steam engine showcases the epitome of British engineering excellence. The image offers a glimpse into the bustling atmosphere of Swindon Works during its heyday. To the left of the frame, we catch sight of an intriguing structure - the large pattern store. This building served as a vital hub for storing intricate designs and blueprints that formed the backbone of innovation within these historic walls. Cardigan Castle itself exudes power and elegance with its sleek lines and polished exterior. Its regal presence is further enhanced by its nameplate proudly displayed on its front facade. The locomotive's robust wheels stand ready to conquer any challenge thrown their way while emitting an air of nostalgia that transports us to a bygone era. This print not only captures a moment frozen in time but also pays homage to both human ingenuity and our enduring fascination with trains. It serves as a reminder that beneath every mechanical masterpiece lies countless hours spent perfecting patterns and designs in order to bring dreams to life on steel tracks
