  • 4930 Hagley Hall is a Great Western Railway, 4-6-0 Hall class locomotive. Built in May 1929 at Swindon Works to a design by Charles Collett. It is one of eleven of this class that made it into preservation. The train is named after Hagley Hall in Worcestershire. Its first shed allocation was Wolverhampton Stafford Road. After moving around the midland and southern sections of the western region it was withdrawn in December 1963 having covered the impressive total of 1,295,236 miles, eventually being sold for scrap to Woodham Brothers scrapyard in Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales in May 1964. Sold to the Severn Valley Railway in 1972 it became the 29th departure from Barry arriving at Bridgnorth in April 1974. It was eventually restored to working condition in 1979, and ran back on the mainline reaching as far south as Plymouth and north to Chester. 4930 hauled the official re-opening train into Kidderminster Town station in 1984. 4930 Was also one of the regular locomotives to be used on the mainline in 1985 during the 150th anniversary of the Great Western Railway alongside 3440 City of Truro, 5051 Drysllwyn Castle, 6000 King George V, 7029 Clun Castle, 7819 Hinton Manor, 75069 & 92220 Evenning Star.
