50xx 1958c Bath
What an absolutely superb shot here at Bath Spa as a spotless'Castle" runs in with the 8.20.a.m.from Weston Super Mare to Paddington which it will have worked from Bristol Temple Meads, whilst a Westbound train waits, with a little lad, complete with his notebook, on the near platform contrasting with the travellers about to embark on the far side. He looks far too young to be on his own, but perhaps he belongs to the photographer and is in training ! Note the signal box high above the platform on the'down" side. This Weston Super Mare early morning run was very often entrusted to the two Gas Turbines during their time in operation on the Paddington to Bristol main line. Well done the photographer , I wish it had been myself !
