Between gardening duties I was hoping to pop out to see 43002 & the first Cross Country HST from Newquay at Lostwithiel. Both services just 25 mins apart.
I was scuppered for 1S59 from Newquay due to a brake fault on the way down to Newquay near Tregoss, which saw the passengers evacuated and the set returned empty to Laira. On a happier note, 43002 did bring up the rear of 1A87 as advertised near 13.00. The overhead sun catching the blue & yellow rather nicely, and bringing back memories of the HSTs in blue & grey. The castle in sunlight eluded me sadly, there were few clouds about - but you can rely on one to blot out the landscape. The town was busy celebrating Lostfest.
All the best. Craig
Many thanks, a very nice angle for your shot.
