A shot grabbed from a special military train of No. D0260 Lion in Taunton station probably in June 1962. The military train was carrying RAF Boy Entrants to summer camp from RAF Cosford to Plymouth and had stopped in Taunton to take on a Castle class as pilot to the Castle class train engine as the heavy train was too much to take over the Devon banks unassisted. We were locked in the train lest we escaped! 1962
