Welcome to the 
WESTERN LOCOMOTIVE ASSOCIATION

Owners and operators of 2 x CLASS 52 DIESEL HYDRAULIC LOCOMOTIVES on the 
Severn Valley Railway....... and at large.

A photographic record of all your favourites in and around Swindon Works ...  the good, the bad, and the ugly.........

Our thanks go to Gene Johnson for this shot of D1068 WESTERN RELIANCE running very short on time in this c.1979 shot.

This is the sad sight of D1022 looking very forlorn after being placed on the dump following withdrawal some months beforehand from OOC. She stands alongside D1009 still looking in reasonably good external condition, but shorn of her engines.

Renown, Sultan, Gauntlet and Trooper are lined up at the back of A Shop - but what was the other Western in the line in this 1978 scene? (Yes, there are five)
