No problems with Tornado’s whistle this week as she was making good progress through Teignmouth and Dawlish after a late start away from Paignton.
Video from myself and Nick Campbell of Tornado passing through Teignmouth and Dawlish.
Next Saturday we have two specials to look forward to. First through will be diesel hauled by D1015 Western Champion at 9.32am at Dawlish. This is a one day tour from Birmingham to Penzance and will be returning at 7.41pm. Later in the day we have LMS 6201 Princess Elizabeth in Crimson Lake livery with a Cathedrals Express working to Cornwall from London Paddington. Times are not yet finalised. This is a 4 day excursion with the return run on Tuesday 20th September.
This video contains the footage from the Dawlish Beach cameras today. It was great to have a whistle from the crew today!
Just an additional treat for the steam fans, we have footage from Newton Abbot taken by our friend Roger.
