Severn Tunnel Junction Yard 30 June 1985

Severn Tunnel Junction Yard, pictured on 30 June 1985. Note the huge variety of wagons types, and the still healthy level of traffic. At this time the yard was a main Speedlink hub, but two years later the entire site, and the adjacent loco depot, was closed. Gloucester took over a lot of the yard's work, until the Speedlink network was withdrawn in 1991.
