I popped over the border into Dorset today and visited Chetnole on the Yeovil to Weymouth line.
Photo 1 shows blue 166215 on the 2Z78, 1533 Westbury to Weymouth; photos 2 and 3 are of
37610 (leading) and 37612 on the Tyseley to Bristol High Level siding via Weymouth test train.
As you can see, what a green and pleasant land we live in!
Stay safe, Bill .
Doubled-headed by Castles 5029 and 5051 (the latter totally hidden by steam and smoke), here the the 1520 Penzance - Ealing Broadway "Cornubian", charging east through Respryn towards Bodmin Parkway. I remember that the noise was absolutely terrific!
Note the tribute to Bryan Dudley-Ward on the headboard, a legendary steam driver who had passed away earlier that year.
Best Regards, Chris Harvey.
