Thursday 8 June - Travel to London with a visit to the Swindon Museum

It was still raining this morning and we were glad to get away from wet Wales. We changed trains at Swansea and arrived at Swindon where we walked the mile or so to the Steam Museum.

This is in one of the  buildings of the Swindon works where GWR locomotives were built and much more.

The role played by women during the war was emphasized

I rode on this locomotive on a trip to Worcester.  7037 was the last Castle cless locomotive built

Caerphilly Castle was placed so that we could get far enough away to appreciate it.

Brunel with North Star

King George V.  I polished the bell while I was at Reading

City of Truro was the first locomotive to be timed at more than 100 mph

We caught an HST to Paddington stopping only at Reading
