The beginning of the final year for Western Region steam but Gloucester's Horton Road Depot is still in use and is now the home to a number of Midland Region locomotives as well as its own allocation following closure of the nearby Midland Region Depot at Barnwood and the transfer of that Depot's allocation over to here at Horton Road. 44422 in the background is minus her trailing wheelset whilst 6859 " Yiewsley Grange " , a Birkenhead shedded engine in past years , looks to be in a reasonable condition for this period in time when general neglect of the remaining steam locomotives still in service was very much the sign of the times. Horton Road's coaling stage is on the extreme left , with the turntable edge also just visible inthe forground.
