YEAR INFORMATION
2011 Barry J. Freeman set the date of this striking picture in 1957 during the days when the Western Region went through a period of creating named trains and there coaches were once more painted in the chocolate and cream colours of the old GWR.
“Taunton” Castle was chosen as it was one of the last Castles built and complemented the train perfectly.
