Having researched the history of GWR/BR Class 64xx loco's I got the impression that they were used in Wales, Devon and Cornwall with one escaping to run an Auto Coach service between Gloucester and Chalford.

I wanted to base Kingswood in my area so having a 64xx kind of put the dampers on that!

I was over joyed to find this on the internet..........

Hi John,

From the RTCS: Initially 2 at Kidderminster, 3 at Stourbridge, 2 at Stafford Road, 8 at Laira, 25 in South Wales. By 1954 South Wales had 30 at the expense of the other divisions.

Looks like Kidderminster kept at least one. All had auto gear fitted.

Nigel
