Editors Notes: 

"Merchant Navy" Pacific no. 35006 "Peninsular & Oriental S. N. Co." was the only one of Bulleid's 8P locomotives to be allocated to one depot its entire life, this being Salisbury shed. Restored to working order on the Gloucester Warwickshire Railway and returned to working order last year following a period out of use which was double its service life, the engine made its first visit to Southern metals once again during the Watercress Line's commemorative summer gala and is seen calling at Medstead and Four Marks station with a westbound train.
