Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The steam locomotive no. 5972 "Olton Hall" is a 4-6-0 Hall class locomotive. In the 2000s the locomotive achieved fame after it was used to haul the "Hogwarts Express" in the Harry Potter series of films. Built in April 1937 at Swindon railway works for the Great Western Railway, she was first allocated to Neath, South Wales. In August 1950 she was moved by British Railways to Carmarthen. After being fitted with a three row superheater at Swindon, she was allocated to Plymouth Laira TMD. Her last shed allocation was to Cardiff East Dock, before she was withdrawn in December 1963, and acquired by Woodham Brothers, Barry, Vale of Glamorgan for scrap in May 1964.show more
