Taunton to Shrewsbury
Some recent pictures in the heat of last week, rudely replaced with mid Winter conditions.
Photo (1) An afternoon visit to Lostwithiel saw a 4 car Castle set arrive and the clay set off down to Carne Point. The platform view is a super one in the mid afternoon with the signals and boix catching the sunshine.
Photo (2) The same clay train is seen passing St Blazey box 40 mins earlier. The Temporary speed sign rather outstanding in day-glow lime in the foreground.
Photo (3) Then on 25th ROC owned 47813/815 headed from Leicester to Laira with two barrier vehicles for a trip of mk3 coaches to Ely. They pass Ivybridge in scudding sun/cloud bursts. These locos were former FGW class 47/8s an were regular in the area once.
Photo (4) Finally, on Sat a super double rainbow lit the skies, among heavy downpours. Our pot of gold featured is Par box.
Regards Craig. Many thanks Craig.
