Large Logo 47814 opens up the throttle as it powered south in 1989.
A local DMU headed for Weston Super Mare. Despite stopping at local stations en route, Bedminster was not one of them.
The station entrance is decorated with a mural.
The underpass into the station is also brightly painted and, surprisingly, untouched by vandals.
Modern platform shelters on platform 1.
The shelter on the up platform is of a much smaller design. Just visible to the right of the shelter is the top of the Clifton Suspension Bridge.
The down slow was out of use.
At one time Bedminster station was accessible from both ends. These bricked up stairways led down to the bridge at Windmill Close. The red warehouse in the distance has been built on the site of the old goods shed at Pylle Hill.
A Voyager heads south working wrong line.
The view south from platforms 2 & 3. This is a similar view to the 1989 one above.
This sneaked up on me while I was on the phone. 37605 and 37610 head north with a nuclear flask train.
