SKU: 66-32/04-095 Category:


A general view of Bath Junction looking north-north-east showing the signalbox with the line to Mangotsfield and Bristol behind and the S&D line curving away in the foreground. Note the empty holder for three fire buckets under the signalbox steps, the distinctive telegraph pole with 14 insulator bars, Whitaker tablet apparatus, plus a gasometer and coal heaps in the background.

Photo taken at 3.05 pm on Sunday 2 January 1966. 10 minutes later, two locomotives passed by light-engine – see 04-096; these had hauled a special service on what was planned to be the last day of the S&D.
