31420 Kemble 28 August 1982

31420 waits in Kemble station with the lengthy 3B42 09:20 Gloucester to Swindon parcels train on 28 August 1982. Needless to say the 31 had not climbed Sapperton Bank on its own with such a load, and 47220 had just been detached from the front of the train when this picture was taken. The 31 then carried on towards Swindon, whilst the 47 made its way back to Gloucester light engine.
