West Country Class No. 34097 ‘Holsworthy’ is seen in sunny weather on an Up passenger service of eight carriages just west of Hinton Admiral; the long embankment that the line runs on from Christchurch can be seen in the background. Note a person standing on the Down line.

The locomotive is shown as allocated to Eastleigh from May 1962 until withdrawal in 1966, so this indicates a date range for the photo.
