BR Standard 5MT 4-6-0 no. 73018 banks the 11.05 Weymouth - Wolverhampton service on the approach to Bincombe tunnel on 8/7/656. The stock is passing the site of the erstwhile Upwey Wishing Well Halt and 73018 will ease off on passing the summit in the tunnel leaving classmate 73020, the train engine, in sole charge. Both engines were allocated to Weymouth at the time, would move to Guildord in March 1967 and survive to the end of Southern steam in July 1967.
