Piloted Up freight climbing out of the Severn Tunnel through Pilning High Level station
One of the 2-6-2Ts dedicated to assisting freight trains through the Tunnel, Collett '5100' No. 4121 (built 12/37, withdrawn 6/65, but was preserved and is currently undergoing restoration at Tyseley Locomotive Works), is piloting Collett 4-6-0 No. 4998 'Eyton Hall' (built 3/31, withdrawn 10/63) - a fine sight and sound. Note the sign 'Pilning Junction for Severn Beach and Avonmouth': the service via Severn Beach was still in operation (until 11/64).
