BR Standard 4MTs Nos. 75023 (with 82G shedplate) and 75027, pictured just north of the Winsor Hill tunnels with the 11.12am (SO) Bournemouth-Sheffield service with seven carriages visible in August 1962, a few weeks before such services were diverted.

The photographer commented that these two Templecombe engines were nearly always to be seen with this service on Saturdays and would return south later on the Pines Express and the 10.30 am Liverpool-Bournemouth respectively.

Note the disused signalbox in the background plus disused and fenced-off quarry sidings. To the left can be seen both a standard metal 40 mph speed limit sign as well as an illuminated speed limit sign adjacent.

75023 is shown as allocated to Templecombe from September/October 1961 until September/October 1962 and withdrawn in January 1966. 75027 is shown as being allocated to Templecombe from February 1960 to November 1962 and has been preserved.
