Wootton Bassett Junction Station, c.1960

6100 Class tank locomotive No. 6129 waits in steam at Wootton Bassett Junction Station in the early 1960's. Sited on the original London to Bristol main line, this was the third in a succession of GWR built stations to serve the town of Wootton Bassett, following on from Wootton Bassett Road and Wootton Bassett Station. The ?Junction was added to the station's title following the opening of the South Wales and Bristol Direct Railway in 1903 for which Wootton Bassett became an important junction station

Yeovil Town Station, Somerset, c.1950s Featured 3 Jun 2013 Image

Yeovil Town Station, Somerset, c.1950s

A bustling scene at Yeovil Town Station taken in the late 1950's. The chimneys of the large station building can be seen above the platform canopy, and the passenger footbridge which straddled the tracks is visible at the far end of the three platforms. When it first opened in June 1861, the jointly owned station was served by four signal boxes, two station masters houses and two station masters whose joint cooperation must have been essential for the smooth running of the line.
The station closed to passengers in October 1966
