70A Home to GWR Engines

Post by 35005CP on Tue Mar 29, 2011 10:38 pm

Hi all,

I have just found this interesting article relating to 70A being home to GWR Pannier Tanks.

Does anyone have any memories or stories on these locos?

Although it states that they were popular with Nine Elms Enginemen, how popular could they have been with issues with the Vacuum and release opf the Brakes?

Could be an interesting discussion. Cool

This topic was raised under "all other locos" about 18 months ago. It might be worth your looking to see what response there was.

Thanks for that John. Just seen the thread. Not alot more was posted after mine.
Have you clicked on the GWR Pannier Tanks link above in my first post with the information about the GWR Panniers on the Southern?
