Waiting at Blue Anchor

4/10/2009 during the last day of the West Somerset Railway's Autumn Gala 9466 and 5224 are waiting the arrival from Bishops Lydiard of 6024 and 4160.
2 things wrong here 6024 was supposed to be train engine and 9466 should have stopped a carriage length back so the first carriage was alongside the platform thus a well planned shot was sadly spoilt.

Pity about that, John, is there a passing loop at the station, the incoming train appears to be on a single track.

What is the fella doing walking beside the carraige? Is it a ghost?

Hi Peter and David,
Firstly you can just see the loop track starting by the first carriage behind 6024.
Now the ghost. He is wearing a collar and tie with his denim jacket and trousers which I would have thought was a little overdressed for footplate crew!!
On picture #7581 he is just climbing down from 5224.
But what a spot I never noticed him!!

Just a thought that he must be heading back to the end of the train to collect the single track token from the signalman who would take if off the driver/fireman of 6024 to pass on.
