    Happy New Year to all the people who enjoy my photos and the ones who take the time to reply regarding locations (I will be sorting them all out on New Years Day)


    The SR Class W were 3-cylinder 2-6-4T tank engines designed in 1929 by Richard Maunsell for use on the Southern Railway . They were introduced in 1932 and constructed at Eastleigh and Ashford. The class was intended for short distance, inter-company/regional freight traffic transfer in London, and were standardised with parts from the N, N1, U and U1 classes.

    Hi Neil,

    A few more locations to fill in some of the gaps
    3/35 1915 Stewarts lane
    12/35 31913 & 31922 Eastleigh Depot, 9F on the right seems to confirm that as it's the only likely depot where their paths would have crossed.
    14/35 31914 Feltham?
    18/35 31917 Kensington Olympia
    28/35 31922 Between Kensington Olympia and West brompton with the connections into LT Lille Bridge depot on the right.
    32/35 31924 Waterloo Windsor line platforms.

    Cheers, Neil
