She picks up more wagons. It's interesting that the match wagon is just a normal five plank open, I've always remembered these locos as being matched with a Conflat. 03382 was a long-standing Bath Road Depot loco. She was transferred to Landore in 1981 before being withdrawn from there in October 1983. She was cut up at Swindon Works in February 1986. © Dunstable Dasher

The view across to Temple Meads.
This is the building was standing next to the crossing on Barton Road and is visible in quite a few of the photos on the Avon Street page. I'm archiving it here because it's hard to imagine it lasting much longer.
