EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning photograph captures Locomotive No. 6800, Arlington Grange, in its original splendor at Swindon Works in 1936. The 4-6-0 locomotive, a proud addition to the Great Western Railway (GWR) fleet, was built during an era of innovation and progress in railway engineering. Arlington Grange, named after the Arlington Estate in Gloucestershire, was designed with advanced features for its time. Its powerful 2,100 horsepower engine and improved boiler design enabled it to haul heavier loads and travel longer distances with greater efficiency. The locomotive's elegant lines and streamlined appearance were also a testament to the GWR's commitment to aesthetics and design. In this image, we see Arlington Grange in its ex-works condition, fresh from the Swindon Works production line. The locomotive's polished metal surfaces gleam under the factory lights, and the intricate details of its engineering are on full display. The coal bunker and water tank are filled, ready for the locomotive's maiden voyage on the rails. The Arlington Grange class of locomotives served the GWR faithfully for decades, playing a crucial role in the transportation of goods and passengers across the network. Today, this photograph serves as a reminder of the rich railway heritage that the STEAM Museum of the GWR preserves and celebrates. It is a testament to the ingenuity, craftsmanship, and passion of the engineers and workers who built and operated these magnificent machines. This image transports us back in time, allowing us to marvel at the beauty and power of the steam age.
