The Oxford 'Metros'
Issue 1 (1983)
These 2-4-0 tanks were designed with exhaust steam condensers for working on the underground sections of the Metropolitan Railway (the name 'Metro' stuck to them) but after electrification in 1906 they could be found all over the GWR system. Following the introduction of the larger 2-6-2 tanks, the 'Metros' began to disappear, and by 1939 most had been scrapped. However, the majority of the 1899 batch Nos. 3581-99 and 3500, worked through the Second War period, and Oxford became the last 'Metro' tank stronghold.
