What a scene! Severn Tunnel Junction marshalling yard was one of those places of pilgrimage where you could always expect something interesting, whether it was an unusual loco on the stabling point or something passing on the main line. In September 1987, the yard was about to be closed so this view serves as a reminder of better days. The background here is now scarred by the new M4 to the Second Severn Crossing and all you can hear between passing trains is the roar of traffic. 26/9/87
