BR Standard Class 9F No. 92001 (built 1954) pictured at the head of a nine-carriage Nottingham-Bournemouth service in 1961. A reporting code of 1O91 is displayed. From the greenery and the wide-open windows of an adjacent house, this was taken on a glorius hot summer day.

At the top left of the picture, the Chilcompton twin-bore tunnels can be seen. The sweep of the line – from close to the tunnels up to the road bridge that 92001 is crossing –  is today a footpath and a very pleasant walk.
