Please note all you kindly folk who send in photographs that the clocks go back at 02.00 tomorrow. As compilers of the web site we would be very grateful if you check that your cameras are showing the correct time. If your picture comes from a digital camera, we can, by going to 'Properties' followed by 'Details' ascertain when the picture was taken. This is particularly valuable when a series of pictures are sent in 'out of order' as sometimes does occur.
Thank you all for your support.
Not on this Train
West of Yeovil
0453 Exeter New Yard - Yeovil Junction
2300 Yeovil Junction - Exeter New Yard.
If differs slightly on Saturdays with an ECS run from Salisbury to Exeter in daylight.
Friday however 159006 ran ECS from Loughborough to Salisbury via Bristol, Exeter(St David's) and Honiton. The unit was in the new revised, revised livery and like 159003 has lost the name it was given in SWT days.
Dave Many thanks David
and the Tramway
Fortunately the line to Seaton is still in use in its present form as a re-gauged tramway, but for the short distance from Colyton to Seaton Junction.
It would be interesting if this gap could be reinstated to reconnect with the ex LSWR mainline. (Please see attached map).
Hopefully the station will continue to exist and not meet the fate of so many historic buildings in this so called enlightened age!
Best wishes Andrew Many thanks Andrew
It would be nice if the tramway were to be extended to a re-opened Seaton Junction station but unless that re-opening occurs there would be little point in extending the tramway. It is approximately 1.5 miles from Seaton Junction to Colyton, but what would that cost what with the tram track + overhead + a new station at Seaton Junction?
A request from Clive Smith
All the best, Clive Can anyone advise please??
