The John Farrow Memorial charter ran from London Victoria to Sherborne and thence ecs to Yeovil Jct for servicing.
This was headed by 35028 CLAN LINE, and it and support coach looked immaculate, as befits a loco used on the British Pullman trains.
The photos show the train arriving, the support coach and loco reversing to coaling area.
Best regards, Bill Elston.

Thomas Moule (1784 – 1851) did various things in his life but is probably best known for his series of “County Maps” published from 1830 onwards. The maps are decorative and useful for recording the roads and railways then existing; e.g there is no direct road from Hayle to Penzance on the Cornwall Map. The AA's 2022 Road Atlas is already on sale and it was no different in the 1830s. Moule's County Map of Cornwall was dated 1837 but was in fact published in 1836. The Map shows just one railway that from Hayle to Redruth which was still under construction at the time the map was published. The first length of the Hayle Railway was opened to goods traffic on 29 December 1837 but did not carry passengers until 22 May 1843. The map should also have shown the Bodmin & Wadebridge Railway which had opened in 1834.

I did a study of Moule's maps at university. They come in many forms, published over several years. The Hayle railway looks slightly odd on the version Mike shows us. This is because it was added later, probably about 1842 , for a book edition of all the maps.
Moules come in many forms, with different colouring and seemingly random additions and deletions. I have one which places Launceston in Devon!
Roy Thanks for the info Roy.
