Rebuilt Bulleid light pacific 34017 Ilfracombe with an up Bournemouth working but note that at least the first two coaches are Bulleid compartment stock. I believe that this was taken on a winter's evening in 1963 judging by the lack of foliage. Note the glimpse of Wimbledon 'C' box in the background and the tracks curving in the direction of Sutton. Wimbledon was an awkard place to photograph Up trains in the evening because of the prevailing light. Digitally. I could have brought out more detail on the locomotive but I prefer to retain a picture's original ambience as shown here.
