Bristol Temple Meads, Sunday April 14th 1974

 

A fairly quiet Sunday session at Temple Meads with the classic 1974 mix of renumbered and unrenumbered locos. Classes 25 and 31 were in evidence, also the rare 33205 probably on a Pompey. The highlight which i can still remember that sunny afternoon, my last Western for sight arriving with a passenger service too much leaping around!

08051755034webr.jpg Also out in April 74 and still in active service with Chiltern on 080517 is W55034 at Risboro on a shuttle from Aylesbury. Sadly the Chiltern bubbles have now been retired from normal services
