GWR 4-6-0's - MikeMorant

One of my first attempts at using colour taken on the original Ektachrome film (E1 process) and with a Super Baldina 35mm bellows camera which, my first wife told me, is alive and well in Australia. This is August 1958 at Newton Abbot and the common sight of a double-header departing for points west. The pilot engine is Collett Hall 4-6-0 4925 Eynsham Hall but the train engine isn't identifiable. What is odd, however, is that the Hall was based at 81C Southall at the time which is confirmed by the shed plate and one wonders whether or not it would continue as pilot through to Plymouth. It was probably a rare cop for the spotters.
