The fireman has stoked the fire on WCPR No 2 “Portishead” (former S.R / L.B.S.C. “Terrier” Class 0-6-0 “Gipsyhill” built at Brighton in 1877) while the driver has oiled around the rods before departing with the 8.10am service for Weston Super Mare.
Viewed from left to right outside the sheds is seen WCPR No 5, an 0-6-0 saddle tank built by Manning Wardle of Leeds in 1919.
Next is WCPR No 1 “Clevedon”, a 2-4-0 tank built by Dubs of Glasgow in 1879 for the Jersey Railway.
Finally WCPR No 4 “Hesperus” a 2-4-0 tank built by Sharp, Stewart and Co. of Manchester in 1876 for The Watlington and Princes Risborough Railway.
In 1933 the Second Class Fare from Clevedon to Weston Super Mare was 1/1d. The railway closed to all traffic in May 1940.
