Thingley Junction 17 March 1995

During the 1990s the sidings at Thingley Junction were used to store a variety of rolling stock pending possible preservation. At various times the remote location hosted several locomotives, even at one time including 50017 Royal Oak. This 17 March 1995 view shows a line of withdrawn Mk1 coaches awaiting their fate. The town of Chippenham can be seen in the background, with St Paul's church on the left.
