Fowler S&D 7F No. 53808 (built 1925 as S&D No. 88) is pictured on a Down passenger service of seven carriages just about to cross over the Great Western main line at Cole. The locomotive carries what appears to be a reporting code including the numbers 087.
53808 is shown as already allocated to Bath Green Park at the time of nationalisation in 1948 and remaining there until withdrawal in April 1964. Arriving at the Woodham Bros. Barry Island scrapyard in August of that year, the locomotive was rescued by the Trust in 1970 and returned to steam in 1987.
