I believe the Banks/Carter book covers this in some detail, if you can get sight of a copy.

24 years is the duration of the Grouping period and all company stock evolved substantially over that time. There were through workings between Southampton and Bournemouth, but according to a 1930 East Coast carriage working Southampton-Glasgow was provided by a single Brake Composite (34 tons, 12 first:18 third seats) supplied by the North British (Southern Scottish Area) and the Bournemouth-Newcastle also by a Brake Composite (28 tons, 12 first:32 third seats) supplied alternately by the Great Central (Southern Area - Western Section) or the SR.

Thanks J W & 65447 for your info,great shot of D10 Prince George @ Banbury from Robert CWP.During the1950-1960s the southern coaches{ alternate days} we re hauled by an Oxford or Banbury HALL as far as leicester,Loco returning 1900 ish with a south bound FISH.As I intend to run said train on my LNER layout I wondered if GWR loco s were seen on this section of the Great Central between the wars.All information greatly received.

From a later era I have some amateur archive film footage on dvds that feature the aforementioned train working at Bournemouth in 1967 featuring a Black 5 with B.R. Mk1s and also in 1965 just outside Basingstoke on the Beading line the same working again featuring another Black 5 and also a ex GWR Hall is seen also taking the Reading line although from memory I can't recall where the Hall was ultimately destined for without re-watching the dvd again?.

Fantastic piece of information,brings back memories of dashing out of school to watch said train thunder across the girder bridge.
Still hoping someone will dig up if GWR locos ran on GC metals 1924 till wartime,thanks for all replies so far,
Ron
