A 1960s view of Shepton Mallet station looking south from the footbridge towards Evercreech New; platform shelter with at least four passengers waiting on a clearly wet day. Gentlemen’s open air convenience in view, plus signalbox beyond. Platform bench seat with the letter ‘W’ picked out on the three supports [presumably for Western Region]. What appear to be rail-carrying flatbed wagons are in the sidings behind the signalbox.
