    I'm sure a little chat with the neighbours at Buckfastleigh could produce something!

    Thanks to NP at its best I enjoyed L94 + 75014 on the 14.15 Pgn to Kingswear and ret.
    Noisy!! Pannier in front on the way back and a storming climb.
    Passing 7827 meant today 3 locos were working hard on a high frequency service.
    As usual very friendly staff!
    I didn't expexc haulage behind L94 in Paignton- it regularly passed my school in Hammersmith and I saw it very frequently at K O or other places on the Underground!
    Enjoy it whilst you can........WITH A BRILLIANT visitor to the SDR rumoured I suspect S Devon will be especially good this summer ! Plus a paddle boat....... Oh and the TBE/Par etc

    4277 is running the scheduled services this weekend.

    46100 is also visiting the line on Saturday, with RTC's "Dartmouth Express".

    Had a lovely trip behind Hercules today, shame its the last year of her boiler ticket (4277 and 5239 will be missed).

    Got a fleeting glimpse of Braveheart at Churston, hoping she's in steam on my next visit. Great job on the overhaul.

    The devonbelle was being worked on in Paignton shed, any chance it will be seen again this year?

    You can catch the train to churston, it's then a 2 minute walk up the road towards brixham.

    Does anyone know when the pannier is planned to be used over the coming weeks? Also when does it head back to Tysley?
