Paul & Alison Barlow
A few shots from last nights train of lights 1845 Paignton to Kingswear. 75014 was at the Kingswear end with USA 2253 heading to Paignton.
A return trip to Kingswear with lots of special lighting effects on the way, including snow at Churston! The steam heating was working very well on the train.
Hope they are good enough quality!
All the best,Paul.
could be called - HOW DIRTY ARE OUR TRAINS? Well, at least some of them!
Interesting to note that, looking at the ‘graffiti’ in the dirt on the yellow front, at some point during the two days between Hugh’s photos D1072 has been turned, presumably on the Laira triangle, although at that time the St Blazey turntable couldn’t be ruled out of course. I had visited Penzance 6 days earlier and noted 08643 and 08840 there, so the Class 08 just to the left of Hugh’s second photo would have been one of these two. 08840 was a very long-serving class member in the far South West.
