The platforms at the west end of Bristol Temple Meads were a good location to observe the comings and goings at Bath Road Diesel Depot.
Here we see Brush Type 4 No 1635 at the entrance/exit to the shed yard, with a Warship, Peak, Hymek and a collection of shunters on view. If I remember correctly, the Metro-Vick Co-Bo was also to be found at the bottom end of the yard, in use as a carraige heating unit.
1635 was later renumbered to 47053 and ended its days at Kingsbury in March 2007.

Is it my memory of would this have been labelled D1635 at some time? Excellent variety for a single shot!

Correct; all locos ordered under the 1955 'Modernisation Plan' were given the 'D' prefix, with 'E' for the electrics.
