Exeter St. David's looking towards Cowley Bridge and Taunton. Class 42 'Warship' diesel hydraulic no. D819 Goliath departs northwards whilst a pair of SR Maunsell 'W' class 2-6-4T's and a Collett 5700 class pannier tank await their turns to help trains on the steep climb to Exeter Central. The leading 'W' is no. 31924 which helps us set a time frame for this undated image as it was an Exmouth Junction allocated engine for only the short period 10/62 - 10/63.
