A photo I have just digitised from my collection at Salisbury that your readers may be interested in.
50002 arrived at Salisbury on the 15:15 Waterloo Exeter on the 18th July 1991 having hit a bird on route, within a couple of minutes the engine was released and is seen leaving its coaches. It did a quick turn on Laverstoke triangle and then departed only a few minutes down.
I'm the chap in blue on the right filming and the incident can be seen at 59 mins and 10 seconds on a Waterloo Exeter video below I made a few years back. (photo Terry Baker)
Please feel free to share the video Keith as you kindly did with my Cornish one a few years ago.
Kind Regards, Martin Baker

A very quick up date, within minutes from another good friend - Roy Hart, out in Rangoon - Dear Keith, This is not connected with diesels: Shell/BP had a private siding at Long Rock, directly opposite the box, since the mid-1930s and this is it.
The engines are simply parked in a convenient space (it is probably a weekend).
Behind the engines the coal stack, which served the shed, is visible.
All the best, Roy Thank you for the correction Roy.
