40145 Severn Tunnel Junction 20 September 2008

40145 passes the site of the marshalling yard and motive depot at Severn Tunnel Junction, as it slows down for the station pickup whilst working the Pathfinder Tours 1Z40 06:29 Tame Bridge Parkway to Kingswear 'Torbay Whistler' railtour on 20 September 2008. The overgrown foreground and waste ground to the left is the site of the extensive marshalling yard, whilst a single building (to the left of the church) marks the site of Severn Tunnel Junction motive power depot. This is probably an appropriate site to take a picture of a Class 40 hauled railtour, as although the class was never common on the Western Region, they were reasonably frequent visitors to this depot.
