This is literally on the other side of the tracks at Yeovil Junction Station and holds regular open days through the year. This wasn't one though. Fortunately a steam locomotive was visible and had to be included in a shot. It was against the light but I used the platform canopy as a big lens hood.
The locomotive is 'Lord Fisher'- Andrew Barclay 0-4-0 ST, No. 1398 of 1915. It was originally used at military establishments and then at gas works until eventually ending up in private ownership at the East Somerset Railway. It is currently at Yeovil and operational.
