Pictures that feature Branksome mpd's environs are thin on the ground. This shot, taken from the window of a train bound for West station and with the shed and turntable out of shot to the right, depicts Fowler 2P 4-4-0 No. 40601 sporting the first incarnation of BR corporate branding which had been applied to this engine in October 1948. 40601 wasn't one of the batch of this class built specifically for the S&D but was nevertheles a resident of either Bath Green Park or Templecombe mpd from nationalisation until withdrawal whilst allocated to Bath in December 1959.
