Regrettably due to signalling problems at Ashley Hill bank, Bristol the train was 75 minutes late passing me at Freshford and the sun had long since retired behind a mass of cloud! I've included another view of the engine passing Freshford on 22 March 2013 when it was delivering sister loco 47739 to Westbury for a private ceremony. Will it return again I wonder?
Best regards, Guy Vincent
My apologies to Guy for a delay in publishing - due to conflict with other events.

Class 37 and Caroline the green saloon is visiting Penzance running as 2Z02

Have spoken to a Driver in DRS Iain who brought it down this time. I asked for a possibility of the 37 leading on the return. He's not on it but will ask anyway! Don't ask, don't get eh?
Sat Sept 22nd A Railtour with class 37s visits Penzance. No timings yet, but one to look out for.
FINALLY a certain steam loco is down in Oct Flying Scotsman is visiting Penzance Sat 6th Oct 2018.
Bound to be a sell out, and the lineside awash with everyone and their brother too!
All the best for now. Craig Many thanks Craig
A few days in the boxes saw me at Goonbarrow. Alarmed to see the recent scrub land fire got exceedingly close to the signalbox and infrastructure, reminding us how tinder dry the landscape is. Voyage 221139 works 1S55 to Motherwell past the scorched embankment and singed trees looking Autumnal early. Some pictures of the slumbering industrial shunting locos are also included.
A visit to Hayle later in the day and the flower beds along Penpol Terrace make a super foreground to the viaduct shot at high tide. A blue HST set is Penzance bound.
All the best, Craig. As usual Craig, many thanks.
