My grandfather used to drive this loco when it was shedded at 85b Cheltenham Malvern Road. My grandparents lived in Malvern Road and as a child from when I was born in 1950 until I was 4 years old we lived in there basement flat.He used to go to work through a gate at the bottom of his garden straight into the engine shed.
