Montacute Station, 1962
Unfortunately there is no caption on the back of this photograph taken of Montacute Station in 1962. We can only assume that some kind of maintenance is taking place on the line towards Yeovil, judging by the row of workers standing in the middle of the track. Just beyond the station building and signal box, a wagon stands waiting in the sidings alongside the cattle pens and small goods office.

This image was taken to mark the occassion of the abolition of the ten minute stop at Swindon. It was the first non-stop express through the station. Since 1840 all trains to and from Bristol had to stop at Swindon to allow passengers to take refreshments.
