EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time to the golden age of steam with this print from the STEAM Museum of the GWR. Captured in 1935 at Swindon Works, this image showcases Locomotive No. 2939, a magnificent Saint class locomotive undergoing an overhaul in A Shop. The sheer size and power of this majestic machine is evident as it stands proudly amidst the bustling workshop, surrounded by skilled engineers and workers meticulously tending to its every need. The locomotive's sleek design and intricate details are a testament to the craftsmanship that went into its creation. Croome Court, a grand country house built in 1911, serves as an enchanting backdrop for this snapshot of history. Its elegant architecture perfectly complements the timeless beauty of the locomotive, creating a scene that transports us back to an era when steam ruled supreme. Sadly, like many other locomotives of its time, Locomotive No. 2939 was retired from service in December 1950 after decades of faithful service on Britain's railways. However, through photographs such as these preserved at STEAM Museum, we can still appreciate and admire their legacy today. This remarkable print offers a glimpse into both industrial innovation and architectural splendor—a true treasure for any railway enthusiast or history lover seeking to connect with our rich past.
