Evening rush, Bird's Hill..
The first of the three commuter consists, which would lay over at Needham Junction, train 455 would complete its run at Needham Heights. It would then make a reverse deadhead move back to the Junction and position itself on the second track. There it became a connecting train, to reach Medfield and West Medway, for passengers on the following outbound. Having a road switcher, rather than an 0700, simplified the process.
