Back to the 8th and the morning sand train loading (in the fetching dark blue livery) was suspended at Burngullow to allow the empty CDAs up the branch. It was a tight squeeze as 66121 sat with the partly loaded box wagons on the "Straight" as 66144 ran alongside on the Wharf to gain the Parkandillack branch. Hopefully a regular sight during 2019?
Then on the 9th word spread of the Loram Railgrinder running from Derby to Okehampton. The traction was a delight with Colas 56113 up front to Exeter, then class 20s 20189 in blue, and London Underground red 20142 tucked inside. I was working in Devon as chance would have it.
The train was pictured at Tiverton Junction, and Newton St Cyres on the branch. The class 56 deposited at Exeter as the RA too high for the Barnstaple branch.
Cheers for now, Craig. Welcome to 2019 keep up the good work please.
