Bomb damage to Bowden Hall locomotive at Keyham Station, 1941

This image was taken on 30th April 1941, the morning after an air raid at Keyham Station, Plymouth. It shows extensive damage to Hall Class locomotive, Bowden Hall, after a bomb landed just feet away from the right side of the cab. The driver and fireman had a lucky escape as they had been sheltering under the steps of the signalbox when the bomb was dropped. Their entire cab was destroyed. The signalbox also suffered significant damage, with all but a few windows smashed in the explosion
