A hefty load of track panels is depicted here passing through Exeter Central station on the Up relief road in the charge of Maunsell 'Z' 0-8-0T no. 30955 piloting Bulleid original West Country pacific no. 34107 Blandford Forum. The date of this shot is 26/6/62 which means that 30955 has only another six months of service as withdrawal came at exmouth Junction shed in the December of that year. Blandford Forum had been allocated to Exmouth Junction since March 1959 and would continue in service there until withdrawal in September 1964.
