EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photograph, we are transported back to the bustling Swindon Works in July 1962. The focal point of the image is the magnificent Modified Hall class locomotive, No. 7903 Foremarke Hall, standing proudly alongside its companion, No. 5992 Horton Hall. These majestic steam engines were undergoing maintenance and modifications at the renowned Swindon Works, a hub of innovation and craftsmanship for the Great Western Railway. The sheer size and power of these locomotives are evident as they dominate the frame with their towering presence. Every detail is captured flawlessly; from their sleek streamlined bodies to their intricate wheels and smokestacks billowing plumes of smoke into the sky. This print serves as a testament to both engineering excellence and historical preservation efforts by STEAM Museum of GWR. It allows us to appreciate not only the beauty but also the significance of these iconic machines that once traversed our railway networks with grace. As we gaze upon this snapshot frozen in time, we can almost hear the rhythmic chugging sound echoing through Swindon Works, reminding us of an era when steam ruled supreme on Britain's railways. It offers a glimpse into a bygone era that continues to captivate enthusiasts and transport lovers alike
