Great photos Mick. :thumbs

The stone bridge in the foreground of Buckfastleigh Station, is that over a canal or is it for pedestrian/road traffic ??

Cheers, Gary.

Thanks for the support chaps.
Gary: The bridge is over a stream that runs through the site entering the River Dart on the other side of the site. The drop to the water is considerable and almost like a deep stone cutting. Am over there tomorrow so will take a couple of pics of it for you.
The Easter offerings at the railway are
Steam: L92 LT Pannier Tank & 3205 (again).
Diesel: Class 37 and Class 25
Also on offer vintage buses, lorries, cars and motor bikes. Goods and passenger workings.
Till Sunday.

Not much better here either Ed. Although they do say it might get brighter later. Believe it when I see it.

Hi Bittern,

All great shots as usual. The Pannier is looking great but I must confess that the 37 gets my vote of approval. It looks absolutely minted.

Thanks for sharing these fantastic shots. Looks like a great day out.

Cheers

Toto

Thanks Lads, it was. Will put some of the vintage trucks, cars and buses up later on when I get back from the Plym Valley Railway running day and Easter Egg hunt.
Gary, I did take some shots of that little bridge and in fact it is two in close succession. The one under the Railway over the stream and the other was a road which lead down to a Paper Mill (now long since gone). Will post some of them as well.

They are here to stay Ed. Well, down here anyway until well after my lifetime. There's one thing about them, they can be very colourful.
Some of the earlier ones were really interesting, albeit in my spotting days many many moons ago, it was the curiosity feature.
Nowadays they are a bit of a much-ness, but eh, they work most of the time.

Visited the South Devon Railway again on Sunday. Only one engine in use which was 3205 (again). Herewith 4 pics for now.

No. 3205 running round its train ready for journey to Buckfastleigh.

Sorry nothing really new. Not much happening with Steam Specials at the moment. There is supposed to be the Great Britain VIII on Tuesday next week, we will have to wait and see.

Latest on the Great Britain VIII is that it is likely to be steam hauled to Exeter then Diesel to Penzance. Will let you know if it changes.
