50029 Templecombe 20 November 1991

50029 Renown rolls into Templecombe station on 20 November 1991 with the 1V09 08:40 Waterloo to Exeter St Davids Network SouthEast service. It is passing the highly distinctive 1938 built Southern Railway art deco signal box. There were just a handful of Class 50s operating on the West of England line at this time, and this was my last sighting of Renown on the national network. It managed to survive into the new year, but only just, being withdrawn on 2 January 1992.
