Steam Locomotive 34097 Holsworthy West Country class 4-6-2 after being rebuiltAbout this object
No 34097 "Holsworthy". The performance of the valve gear described above proved to be extremely unreliable. The "West Country" class proved to be poor steamers, spilled oil and occasionally caught fire! The original valve gear was replaced by conventional Walschaerts type and the streamlining removed at the same time. The above view shows the locomotive after being rebuilt in February 1961. 91.Place Made
