Malachite liveried Bulleid West Country pacific no. 34020 'SEATON' with the first style of BR branding skirts the Teign estuary at low tide circa 1948/9. Southern engine crews in the west country were required to have route knowledge of the GWR route from Exeter to Plymouth and this shot depicts just such a training exercise with 34020 in charge of a motley selection of mixed GWR rolling stock.
