Once again it’s time to put the kettle on! Steam returns to the wall on Sunday with the Railway Touring Company’s Royal Duchy excursion. The tour is again headed by the wonderful LMS Coronation Class 8P 4-6-2 no 46233 Duchess of Sutherland. If you missed her previous visit a few weeks ago then please have a look at this http://new.dawlishbeach.com/duchess-sutherland-royal-duchy/ for our write up of her last visit.

Details are as follows :

  • RTC Royal Duchy
  • Steam Hauled Bristol – Plymouth – Bristol by 46233 Duchess of Sutherland. (Plymouth – Par – Plymouth Diesel)
  • Headcode 1Z37 returning as 1Z39
  • Dawlish times – 11.52 returning at 20.38
  • Timings for other locations http://www.uksteam.info/tours/t16/t0828b.htm

Sadly there is no steaming over the Royal Albert bridge this time but that does give an opportunity for any Plymouth based enthusiasts to go down and watch as the Duchess is taken off and put back on later on.

At present we are unsure if we will be bringing you any additional coverage via our mobile camera as Neil is away.

If you take any Videos or Photographs that you would like included in our post tomorrow then please do post them to our facebook page or email them to me as soon as possible at [email protected] if the files are too large then we suggest using we transfer.
