A surprise visitor along the sea wall today was the passing of the National Rail Inspection saloon. Caroline was originally the BR Southern Region General mangers Inspection saloon. In 2012 it was fitted with push and pull controls which makes having to turn the locomotive round from one end to the other unnecessary. This was evident today when it returned from Newton Abbot in about 18 minutes after passing through on the down line. It is capable of travelling at up to 100mph.
