Templecombe; 92220 ‘Evening Star’ on S&D platform, 1962 (3); G A Richardson



BR Standard Class 9F No. 92220 (built 1960); named ‘Evening Star’, the last steam locomotive built by BR workshops – and, consequently, always destined to be preserved – is seen on the S&D platform at Templecombe in 1962 with a train of at least five carriages.

This is a very simlar view to WSHSD_2022_14_375, just the steam from the cylinder drains is different; however, WSHSD_2022_14_291 provides more of a side view.
