View northward from Gloucester Eastgate station, towards Cheltenham and the north to the right, also Swindon and London. It was unusual to see two 2-6-2Ts on one of these trains, especially not bunker-to-bunker: they are '5101' class Nos. 5194 and 5198 (built 10/ and 11/34), working the 11.45 from Cheltenham St James' on the first stage of its journey to Paddington. The tracks in the foreground go through the ex-Midland Eastgate station towards Bristol.
