Castle' Class 4-6-0 locomotive, No.4094 Featured Print

Castle' Class 4-6-0 locomotive, No.4094

Castle' Class 4-6-0 locomotive, No.4094 'Dynevor Castle', hauling the Ocean Liner Express from Plymouth Millbay to Paddington. The three leading vehicles are 70ft 'Ocean Mails' storage vans, although they appear to have been demoted as there is no legend on the lower panels, and they are probably conveying passengers' luggage. This view was taken at Sonning Cutting, Maurice Early's favorite location. The bridge in the distance carries the A4.

He carries a hammer for knocking in loose keys securing the rails in their chairs. Photographer Cyril Herbert was one of the few enthusiasts who produced studies of railwaymen. Herbert worked on the railway himself and took this photograph while on duty.
