As we say farewell to our
2 + 8 car fleet of HSTs !
We see Clan Line hauling the train backwards through Temple Meads to Pylle Hill Goods just west of the station where she ran round and then brought the train back into platform 11. A couple of close up shots illustrate just how hard the cleaners have worked!
Finally, Clan Line departs on time at 17:11 with just hint of slipping, quickly controlled by the driver. Not bad for a load of 12 - mainly Pullmans - unassisted with the severe curvature at Temple Meads.
Paul Negus. Many thanks indeed Paul
Later in the day, 47593 visited Saltash with the Locomotive Services Ltd class 47 47593 Galloway Princess on a crew run.
All the best, Craig. Many thanks Craig
