Ex-LMS 2P class locomotive No. 40700 (allocated to 82F Bath Green Park) with S&D passenger headcode alongside the water softening plant at Bath Green Park on Sunday 23 July 1961. The photo was taken from a carriage of the Up Pines Express through service from Bournemouth to Manchester. This picture gives a closer-up view of No. 40700, compared with WSHSD_2019_4_63.

To the rear of No. 40700 can be seen 9F No. 92078 (allocated to 18A Toton shed from new). Behind the water softening plant is an ex-LMS 4F class loco; we think it is No. 44146, allocated to 82F Bath Green Park. An ex-tender sludge tank is seen to the left of No. 40700.
