37608 with barrier coaches 6344 and 6346. 0735 5V84 Derby R.T.C to Laira.
Further to our telephone conversation, here are the rather disappointing results. Everything brought forward by 1 hour + and we got down to Laira just as they had started to move what used to be ‘Kingswear Castle’. The 08 took it down towards Ocean Siding and I think they must then have disappeared off towards Tavistock Jct. Whilst we were getting back under the flyover 37608 appeared briefly and then went back into the depot with a barrier vehicle and ‘something’ off a Castle set but I couldn’t see if this was a power car or a coach. By the time we got back up on the flyover, they had gone all the way back to the far sidings and it looks like the 37 is parked there for the night. She had a name on the side, which I think was ‘Andromeda’. This is the only pic I could get and is heavily cropped.
I will try and get something tomorrow morning, but I am not hopeful if they mess around with the timings again. I suspect the 37 will run up to Tavistock Jct to pick up 43158 and I can’t get there tomorrow.
The joys of railway photography. Hope others may have had better luck.
Best regards, Howard.
