Okay, so here we go with the first offering from our February theme. As with many of the labels this month, this label is of fairly recent production.
However the locomotive depicted is Great Western Railway 7037, named Swindon after the town where it was built in 1950.
Swindon was the last ‘Castle’ class loco to be built. Sorry I just could not resist giving January’s theme one ‘final blast on the whistle’.
Finally becoming the victim of ‘progress’ in 1963, although a number of ‘Castle’ class locos are preserved around the UK.
