Fowler 2P Class No. 40698 (built 1932) is pictured leaving Shillingstone with a 4-carriage Up (Templecombe-bound) passenger service in 1959. The engine is passing the goods yard. What appears to be another passenger service is in the Down platform.

Seen with steam issuing in all directions, this locomotive was withdrawn in the following year.
