75069 Purton 2 March 1985

Just a few miles into its return journey, BR Standard 4 4-6-0 75069 passes Purton in failing light on 2 March 1985 with the SLOA Swindon to Newport 'Red Dragon' railtour. The group of people (and especially the dog) make this picture, but given the fact that the line is right next to the road, and there is nothing other than a low fence in the way, I cannot understand why some people have chosen to view the train from the wrong side of the fence!
