For the record 37612 was working an overnight Ultrasonic Rail Test Train covering the route between Bristol TM-Cardiff Central-Bristol Parkway-Wootton Bassett Jctn-Lawrence Hill-Bath Spa-Westbury and back to Bristol. It was about 2 hours late so I was pleased to have a chance to record it just prior to departure. The full formation was: 37612 96608 (Brake Force Runner), 6263 (Generator Van), 999606 (Ultrasonic Test Unit), 9806 (ex Caledonian sleeper carriage) and 9702.
One final note. The section of platform 1 (formerly platforms 1 and 2) next to the loco was at one time occupied by the former Westbury Middle Signal Box. This dated from 1899 and closed in 1968 but was not demolished until 1973. Platform 1 (on the right) closed in 1984 and the former platform 2 then became 1 and was extended to its current length in 1999.
