Bulleid original West Country class pacific no. 34011 Tavistock departs from Exeter St. David's with an Ilfracombe-bound service. 34011 was an Exmouth Junction engine from May 1958 until withdrawal in November 1963 which was one of the earliest withdrawals of this class.
This shot has much peripheral interest in the form of an NBL Type 2 diesel hydraulic on the right and a 'sandwiched' Collett 1400 class in the bay at the left.
