Finally got to capture resident Pilot 08645 'St Piran' hauling 5C50 19.40 Longrock T&RSMD-Penzance 'Night Riviera' ECS at Ponsandane bridge tonight with 57604 'Pendennis Castle' ticking over on the rear, 4 shots for CRS
All the Best
But it didn't get Far.
From another website I belong to:
"1A50 will be 80x vice LHCS tonight. Train left Penzance right time but the Crankcase Overpressure Bullseye tripped on 57 604 on the single line at Long Rock (non recoverable by driver, failure). Train recovered back to Penzance station by the Long Rock 08 shunter.
80x was 802104. 135 mins late leaving Penzance, 72 mins late at Exeter, 1 min early at Reading (connection to Gatwick maintained) and 15 mins early at Paddington."
Hope the punters had a good sleep in those hard upright seats.....

On the third shot Mayflower is leading the run back to Eastleigh then Portsmouth, and is seen before passing Swaythling station.
