Combe Down tunnel demolition trains November 1967


Whilst in the vicinity of the northern portal of Combe Down tunnel I could hear the unmistakable throb of diesel engines deep within the confines of the bore. A few minutes later a Class 08 shunter emerged into the daylight. Expecting to see a train of wagons being towed the sight that met my eyes was rather surprising.
