Swindon is a large town that has a railway station where trains stop while heading from Bristol back to London's Paddington station on the Great Western Railway. This town is home to the railway works where it was active to build most GWR locomotives and some from other companies. The last locomtoive was built here in 1960 before the railway works was closed down after many years building them back to the Victorian era of Great Britain. It also has a railway museum where one King Class 4-6-0 is preserved hauling its passenger train to Bristol.
The Railway SeriesEdit
Sir Topham Hatt I worked at Swindon under Sir William A. Stanier for the Great Western Railway. It was here that the apprentice liked the ways of having it Great Western and moved to another job to build locomotives before being the first Fat Driector, later Fat Controller in 1948. Sir Charles Topham Hatt II later served under Stanier this time working for him and the first Fat Controller later told him and Stanier to give Henry his new shape following an accident with the Flying Kipper near Killdane where ice and snow caused the signals to be set at danger. Swindon was also mentioned in Duck and the Diesel Engine where Duck and the City of Truro together met each other in 1958 at the coaling plant.
