Today saw the second run of this year’s Torbay Express. Like last week the locomotive on the front was Royal Scot and we have the footage from San Remo and Blenheim cams in the following video.

After last weeks struggle to get up the Somerset banks, the tour was shadowed by GBRF 66732 and i have included it in the video.

First camera shot is from the new and FREE Mount Pleasant camera as Royal Scot approaches the footbridge.

Next we pass San Remo and sadly the Sun decided to dip behind the clouds spoiling the light.

Time for the interloper. OK it’s only a 66 but it was a rare sight in the GBRF livery so worth sharing
