A final view as 66213 begins to turn off the main line at Byfleet Junction onto the line to Virginia Water.  From there it will pass through Staines, Willesden Junction and Clapham Junction before arriving at Barnes.  The point at the end of the right-hand platform was originally the siding to the Brooklands motor racing circuit.  It was later re-used as part of the burrowing junction from the Virginia Water line.

The people standing near the ends of the platforms are waiting to see new steam locomotive 60163 "Tornado" hauling special train 1Z97 from London Waterloo to Botley.
