I had a visit to Dawlish Warren today for lunch with my former work colleagues. Sadly it was not possible to board a train at the time I wanted Polsloe Bridge as trains that stop here off peak do not stop at Dawlish Warren, So plan B, my local bus from home to St Thomas and then the 1032 service to Paignton which started at Exmouth, this service whilst omitting Polsloe Bridge stops at Dawlish Warren. Hurrah.
I was able to photograph 158749 working the 0917 Paignton to Exmouth. Note the Harrington Hump. Not having frequented St Thomas for a while this appears to be a new addition. Then followed a quick shot of the new Marsh Barton Station with still work in progress taken from the train at speed.
By the way the Christmas Lunch was superb.
Would have liked to photo this one from Platform 3 but there was a freight parked on the middle road
47812 t&t 57313 on 1Z86 Swindon to Swansea Northern Belle Christmas Lunch.
