Radstock; 75023 & West Country on Down through service, c.1962; G A Richardson


SKU: WSHSD_2022_14_098 Categories: ,


Standard Class 4 No. 75023 pilots an unidentified West Country Class loco near Radstock on a Down (Bournemouth-bound) through service of at least seven carriages.

The GWR Frome-Bristol line is visible to the right. 75023 was allocated to Templecombe from September/October 1961 until September/October 1962. It’s therefore likely that the photo was taken in summer 1962.

Image 05-028 looks in the opposite direction from just east of this point.
