Down empties coming away from Severn Tunnel Down Yard
View eastward from an Up express, towards Severn Tunnel Junction, the Tunnel, Gloucester etc. The train is headed by Collett '5205' class 2-8-0T No. 5253 (built 12/25, withdrawn 4/63). (The immensely busy main line between here and East Usk Junction (near Newport) was belatedly quadrupled only in 1941).
