    Nice shot Colin with the usual perfect composition.

    I have no problem with it not being steam as I still get exceited when I hear some diesel motive power under load. I was down the garden when this set came along heading for Paignton and I heard it making quite a racket as it climbed from Torquay. I just had time to get my smartphone out and grab a few seconds of video. Then it was double headed but top 'n' tailed on the return a few days later (had it been in Goodrington yard all that time?).

    Cheers,
    John

    Thanks Trev, I have no idea about the wreath on the front of the train.
    Was just wondering, we lost a young recruit, took his own life on the railway line a month ago

    Nice shot Colin. That is one long journey from the South West to my part of the world in the North East.

    ‘Torquay Weekend’ tour

    Not a Steam train photo!

    Late last night I found out that there was a diesel rail tour leaving Torquay this morning, 19th July 2021. So a quick dash to Dawlish I got the photo below.

    47746 top and tail 47237 is seen passing through Dawlish working the 1Z19 10:09 Torquay to Saltburn ‘Torquay Weekend’ tour on the 19th July 2021.
