    The two large locomotives on show are E453 \"King Arthur\" and E454 \"Queen Guinevere\", the first of the Southern Railway\'s new express passenger King Arthur class, probably in the Spring of 1925 before their entry into service. It must be fairly early as \"Guinevere\" seems to have no nameplate yet. Location probably Eastleigh. The main part is a power demonstration, as \"King Arthur\" is easily pushing back two Adams 0-4-2 \"Jubilee\" locos trying to go in the opposite direction.
