47807 Gloucester New Yard 5 August 1989

47807 passes Gloucester New Yard on 5 August 1989 with the 1S49 08:07 Bristol Temple Meads to Edinburgh service. With the Speedlink wagonload freight network still in operation, there is still plenty of varied freight vehicles stabled in the yard. In fact, a couple of years previously the amount of freight handled here had increased considerably, after the closure of Severn Tunnel Junction as a freight handling centre.
