Cosham crossing with Martins the electrical contractors shop visible behind the Corporation bus. It was in his shop that my father started his apprentice as an electrical engineer. Note wartime tank traps on the right of the railway line. For the technically minded the locomotive is 30466 a D15 Class with a rake of GWR Coaches behind.

Used to stand on the footbridge as a kid in the 1940`s just to smell the steam when a train when through. Was standing there one day when a train full of wounded soldiers were unloaded for transfer to Queen Alexandria hospital. Believed they were survivors from the Dieppe raid but not certain.
