A splendid view of Newton Abbot seen from the east end on 17 July 1889. The main train shed is to the right, the down line shed in the centre and the left hand shed is for storing carriages, removed when the down avoiding line was installed just prior to the 1927 rebuilding. In the foreground is Wood a 2-4-0 of the Hawthorn Class, built in February 1866 she lasted until the end of the Broad Gauge.

Ostrich, one of the ten 2-4-0s of the Hawthorn class rebuilt as 2-4-0 saddle tanks in 1877 and used on the South West branch lines stands on the Newton Abbot traverser. The engine appears to be fresh from the works and the details are amazingly clear. The back drop to this photograph is Newton Abbot Goods Shed. The photograph is believed to have been taken circa 1890.
