57xx 0-6-0PT No.4673 at Marsh Mills near Plymouth on 29th August 1961.
Peter Kesrlake adds "Looking northwards towards Yelverton the china clay works and buildings shown here at Marsh Mills were the saviour of the station in its later years, with china clay from the Lee Moor quarries on Dartmoor and china clay from Cornwall being processed before onward shipment, china clay traffic having commenced on the line in 1921 and continuing to today with empty wagons and covered ones visible for such traffic in this view.
The section of track from the main line at Tavistock Junction just a quarter of a mile behind Richard Riley to here was the only double section on the branch to Launceston and this location is now the site of the Plym Valley Heritage Railway."
