The Dawlish Donkey's
Just been scanning some more negatives, and I came across these from exactly twenty years ago.
These are of the Dawlish Donkey series of tours with Standard tank 80079 Four shuttles from Exeter to Newton Abbot and evening trips all run by Past-time rail.
Evening trips were 3rd April Okehampton, 4th April Exmouth (with 37412 trailing to Exmouth) and 5 April to Heathfield (again with 37412 trailing the train)
I remember the return Heathfield trip from Newton Abbot the run was particularly spirited with the engine seemly wide open all the way, amazing run.
Kind regards, Paul Barlow Many thanks Paul Part 2 tomorrow
