08953 at Exeter
08953 is stabled at Exeter St Davids and seen here from the station footbridge. This shot was taken in the late 1970s, clearly on a winter's day judging by the snow on the ground. My earliest memories of Exeter were from summer days in the early 70s, and although the infrastructure hadn't changed much in the interim, it was a different place by this stage. All the hydraulics had gone, and traffic levels on a winter Saturday were nothing like the heady summer Saturdays of eight or nine years earlier. Also on the stabling point this day were 08945, 08288 and 25057.
