Photo Album
Here is the photo album for Great Western Railway No. 6998 'Burton Agnes Hall', a 4-6-0 located in Didcot, Berkshire. If you would like to suggest additional photos for this album, please click here.
At Didcot in September 2016 here is the 'Modified Hall' class 'Burton Agnes Hall'. The Great Western had clearly run out of country houses in their own area as Burton Agnes Hall is in east Yorkshire, many miles away from Great Western territory!
