A scene from the late 1950s, 59XX “Hall” Class 4-6-0 No. 5992 “Horton Hall” heads a down passenger service over Silk Mill Crossing on the western edge of Taunton. In the up direction a 10XX “County” Class 4-6-0 No. 1017 “County of Hereford” passes with the 08.00 Plymouth to Liverpool service. The gates that spanned all four running lines were replaced by lifting barriers in October 1962.
