33039 Bathampton 1 September 1985

33039 passes Bathampton with the 09:15 Portsmouth Harbour to Cardiff Central service on 1 September 1985. Not only has the loco been consigned to history, being withdrawn in May 1989 and cut up MC Metals at Glasgow two years later, but the bridge in the background has also been demolished. This was a farm occupation bridge, and as can be seen in this view it gave an excellent view of Bathampton Junction, where the Bradford-on-Avon line diverged from the Great Western Mainline.
