So a trip to the FGW depot at Exeter was hastily arranged which was photographed at Shaldon & Dawlish. The train eventually departed around 6pm, far too long for me to hang around, plus the light was all wrong by then anyway.
The loco passed the containers still in situ at the washout site, and this portion of the seawall is still closed to walkers at the moment.
Cheers for now Craig Many thanks Craig
