Shunting at Severn Tunnel Junction
Shunting at Severn Tunnel Junction
08634 shunts a bogie bolster wagon. Behind is the bridge carrying the extension of Station Road over the railway yards.

Since this photo was taken in 1981, the yards have closed and the tracks have been lifted. The section of bridge in this photo has been replaced with an embankment. The area of the yards beyond the bridge has been turned into a nature reserve. The land on this side of the bridge has become overgrown.
