Nameplate, ROOD ASHTON HALL, ex GWR Collett Hall Class 4-6-0 No 4965 built at Swindon in 1929 and named after the country house at West Ashton near Trowbridge in Wiltshire, once the residence of GWR Director Viscount Long. Allocated to St Philips Marsh, Penzance, Laira, Reading and 81E Didcot from where it was withdrawn in March 1962 and officially recorded as cut up at Swindon Works in the week ending 28 April 1962. Subsequently it was discovered that, following an exchange of parts between 4965 and sister engine 4983 Albert Hall, it was 4983 scrapped at Swindon. 4965 eventually found its way to Woodham Bros at Barry from where it was acquired for preservation and now resides at Tyseley. In lovely original condition.
