An awful photo of a couple of Westerns on shed at Bath Road. I include this because it's one of the first photos I ever took. It's a polaroid and the quality is rubbish.... but I love it :) D1010 and D1048 leave the depot and prepare to follow sister locos D1023 and D1013 to Plymouth as backup on the last day of the Westerns. 26.2.77.
47076 City of Truro. 17.3.78
Unique liveried 50019 was stabled at Bath Road on the same day.
37133 at Bath Road in the rather bland Departmental grey livery.
