Looking through the Lindeven TMD, a brace of 37s and 50s can be spotted. Regional Railways' 37414 CATHAY'S C & W. WORKS and 37431 BULLIDAE in InterCity livery sit alongside 50027 LION and, just visible to the far right, 50024 VANGUARD.

With the Class 50 and matching rake of NSE stock disappearing Waterloo bound, the trio of Class 117s can be viewed in the stabling sidings.

A birdseye view of the stabling yard with various colourful liveries adorning various classes of resting locos. 50045 ACHILLES awaits permission to proceed onto one of the fuel roads to replenish it's diesel tanks.  50004 St. VINCENT and 33035, in Blue Large Logo and updated NSE liveries respectively, pull a rake of blue and grey stock (originating in Preston) off the UP Relief and bound for Newquay.

Now waiting for it's passengers to alight and board, 50004 St. VINCENT and 33035, patiently wait departure time in platform 4.  The 33 and 20 with their load of pipes, will depart westbound after the 50 and 33 have left for Newquay.  50034 FURIOUS is about to get a soaking as it travels through the washing plant.

PHOTO TWELVE:-

With boy-racers causing grief on the 5th. level of the multi-story car park, the "old bill" has been called to investigate.  As the sun casts longer and longer shadows across the scene, 31110 in Civil Engineers' Dutch grey and yellow livery, pulls an express parcels train through Stroley West Junction and on past what the local rail enthusiasts call the "spotters' paradise," and heads for platform 5.
