SKU: WSHSD_2022_14_087 Categories: ,


BR Standard Class 5 No. 73050 (built 1954, with 82F Bath Green Park shedplate) is seen rounding the curve north of Milldown with an Up (northbound) Pines Express service on a very dull, rainy day. The train appears to have 10 carriages.

73050 is shown as allocated to Bath Green Park from new until July-August 1962 and from November 1962 until March/April 1964.
The SLS data shows the loco as having been withdrawn at that point, then swiftly reinstated at another location.

No date is given for this photo, but the locomotive allocation indicates prior to July 1962.
