Feltham Marshalling Yard, with SR 4-8-0T shunting
View eastwards, towards London: Clapham Junction etc.; ex-LSW 'Windsor Lines'. One of the largest marshalling yards in the country, Feltham was purpose-built by the LSWR in 1921-22 to handle almost all the freight traffic to and through London on the Southern Railway Western Section - about 5,500 wagons per day. The locomotive is No. 30493 (built 7/21, withdrawn 12/59), one of the Urie G16 class of four 4-8-0Ts specially built for shunting over the humps of the Feltham Up and Down Yards: it is working the Down Yard and passing Feltham East Box, the main line being on the left and the Up Reception lines next to it. All this complex was completely swept away by January 1969 and became a Nature Reserve.
