I was interested in the later pictures on the Moretonhampstead line page, especially views of the class 50 on trains in the late 1980s, but noticed the comment on the last picture of a test train at Heathfield on 12th June 2014, where the photographer (Clive) says "I am unsure at to whether up to now this has been the last train to visit Heathfield". Well, there were some Santa specials run but FGW on 21st December 2014 from Newton Abbot which got to Heathfield and which our family 'won' tickets for in a competition.
Unfortunately the train was kept closed & we could not get onto the platform at Heathfield, but I've attached pictures of the special carriage window sticker (which I've got an example of) and a passing view of the old clay loading shed at Heathfield, plus the family by the train back at Newton Abbot.
Having lookedback throught the site, there was some coverage of it in your blog for December 2014.
Best regards & thanks again for a fantastic source of information on past & present railway activity.
Rich Poyner Many thanks Richard - lucky you winning tickets.
