Urie H15 class 4-6-0 no. 30476 at Wishing Well Halt immediately before the summit of the climb from Weymouth which was inside Bincombe tunnel. This is an interesting shot as the headcode is for a Weymouth to Bournemouth train but the leading coach is a Gresley saloon in red livery. What makes this intriguing is that the going-away shot of the same train shows that all the saloon's windows have labels pasted on the insides of the windows and the passengers all seem to be wearing army uniforms. Perhaps even more odd is that 30476 was Eastleigh allocated when this shot was taken.
