6855 1965-07-31 Gloucester

6855 " Saighton Grange " heads northwards past Tuffley Junction at Gloucester and takes the loop line with a returning Westcountry to Birmingham Summer Saturday working as the shadows lengthen at 7 pm on 31st July 1965.
The line down to Eastgate station is visible on the right but this particular working is not booked to call at Gloucester , and 6855 is returning from having worked down to Bristol earlier that morning and having been here at Gloucester at 9.15.a.m.
6855 has lost its cabside numberplates and nameplates and this was one of the last workings of Western Region locomotives on express passenger duties at this time.
