View northward, towards Filton Junction, Swindon and South Wales. The 11.30 Swindon - Bristol Temple Meads stopping-train is passing under the ex-Midland main line to Mangotsfield and the North, as it approaches Lawrence Hill on the ex-GWR main lines. The locomotive is BR Standard Class 4MT 4-6-0 No. 75027, which was built 5/54 and survived to the very end of BR Steam in 8/68 and has been preserved on the Bluebell Railway virtually ever since.
