Back where she was built:
Evening Star at the STEAM museum
Evening Star, the last steam engine to be built at the Swindon Works in 1960, took centre stage at the 7th Swindon Railway Festival this weekend.
The 60s theme of the event attracted a record crowd to the STEAM museum, where other highlights included a collection of some of finest GWR model railway layouts ever assembled in one place.
Pop phenomenon and keen railway enthusiast Pete Waterman was also back to sign copies of his new book 'A Train is for Life'.
