158832 Bath Sydney Gardens 19 August 1993

The classic location of Sydney Gardens, Bath, which was a superb location to watch trains go by, with seats in the park provided for that very purpose. For well over a century there was nothing more than the low stone wall between the park and the line. Network Rail have now ruined this by adding a crude chestnut paling fence, although that is nothing compared with the desecration this location will suffer if the partially aborted electfrication ever gets here! 158832 passes through the gardens on 19 August 1993 with the 07:18 Swansea to Portsmouth Harbour service.
