Former GWR “Hall” Class 4-6-0 No 5999 “Wollaton Hall” approaches Fairwater Bridge, Taunton with the 12.18pm Newton Abbot to Paddington service. At the same time another “Hall” Class 4-6-0 No. 4932 “Hatherton Hall” attempts to make up lost time with the late running 11.05am Paddington to Penzance service having been substituted for an ailing engine of the same class at Taunton. A scene from the summer of 1957.
