Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. GWR Hall Class 5952 was built at Swindon in December 1935. As a mixed traffic engine it would have handled both passenger duties and freight duties. Its first shed allocation was the Penzance depot in Cornwall. In August 1950 it moved to Old Oak Common. During this time it was fitted with a 3 row superheater. In March 1959 it moved again to the Worcester depot. Its last shed allocation was to Cardiff East Dock before it was withdrawn from duties in June 1964. The engine ended up at Woodham Brothers scrapyard in Barry, South Wales and thus survived into preservation unlike some of its other class mates. 5952 Cogan Hall was the 136th departure from Barry in September 1981. It is one of only 11 that survived into preservation.show more
