GWR Route: Banbury to Wolverhampton

Solihull Station: gwrs2315

Ex-GWR 2-6-2T 5101 Class No 5

Ex-GWR 2-6-2T 5101 Class No 5194 stands at the down fast platform with a local stopping train to Birmingham in 1955. On the left can be seen coaches from a passing up express whilst on the right at platform 3 is a local service having arrived from Birmingham. Demand at peak times would see the trains strengthened by the addition of coaching stock. Such examples included the 5:10pm and 5:28pm from Snow Hill, the latter seeing the number being increased up to ten coaches. Built by Swindon works in October 1934, No 5194 was to remain in service until April 1961 when it was withdrawn from 84D Leamington shed.
