The Severn Valley Railway reveals a gleaming Stanier Mogul, ready for the Spring Steam Gala.

The Severn Valley Railway allowed a sneak preview of Stanier Mogul 13268 for the cameras, as it was briefly rolled out of the paint shop at Bridgnorth, just two days ahead of the forthcoming Spring Steam Gala.

Since its overhaul was completed earlier this year, the locomotive has been receiving its new livery. Hand-applied lettering and lining, as well as many sheets of gold leaf, have given it an impressive and authentic finish.

The sole survivor of its class, LMS 13268 is once again carrying the number and livery it had in 1934 when it first entered service. It’s set to be one of the highlights of the Spring Steam Gala, which runs from 18 to 21 April.

The Stanier Mogul joins other members of the SVR’s home fleet for the four-day Gala, including 4930 ‘Hagley Hall’ and 21C127 ‘Taw Valley’ as well as guest locomotives GWR 1369, Terrier No 72 ‘Fenchurch’ and Lambton Tank No 29.
