Add to that list D1015 which is due in Plymouth at 0947hrs today en-route to Penzance. Should be ready in time for it to go through.
It comes back through here again at 1900hrs or there about. I will be ready.

Herewith the first of the weekend. It is a Western Diesel I'm afraid. No. D1015 Western Champion masquerading as No. D1040 Western Queen.

D1040 Western Queen leaving Mutley Tunnel on the Cornishman 28th June 2014 en-route to Penzance.



The Return Leg. Apparently the loco had a split personality, with Champion on one side and Queen on the other.

Western Champion/Queen at Plymouth North Road.



Western Champion/Queen leaving Plymouth. (Note the interesting lamp on the front RH lamp bracket).

Sunday 6th July the following Steam Specials are coming through the region.

GWR Castle Class No. 5029 'Nunney Castle' on the Torbay Express and Black 5 No. 45407 'Lancashire Fusilier' on the Royal Duchy

Approximate timings for Dawlish are:

Torbay Express 11.15 hrs

Royal Duchy 11.25 hrs.

It's best to get there at least 30 minutes before hand as they often run early.

I hope to be at Dawlish if I can get there in time.

It was a Running Day on the local (Plym Valley Railway) yesterday so managed to get there and grab a few pics of 'Albert'.

Hope you like them.

























And for something different









"Now, where did I bury that bone?"



The diesel in the background is Class 50 'Royal Oak'.

More great pics Mick. Only a few weeks back, I was on google maps and came across the Plym Valley Railway. Has the railway line been extended past the old canal ?

Cheers, Gary.

The track at the Plym Valley now goes as far as Plym Bridge (about 1.5 miles). They can't go any further as the rest of the track bed has been set up as a National Cycle Track. Not only that they would need to strengthen and does repairs to the Cann Viaduct (big bucks that they haven't got). They have running days every so often, usually topped and tailed as they have no run round loop yet at Plym Bridge but sometimes they just have one engine on push-pull. If they top and tail it is normally Albert and a class 08 doing the duties but every so often the run Class 50 Royal Oak. It's much too big for the location really but it's fun. They did build a complete new platform at Plym Bridge capable of a four coach train. They are also laying in a siding where they can hold a loco so that on running days they can swap locos on each train. First train of the day would be topped and tailed and the tailed loco would take the train back leaving the other loco in the siding. Next train would be a single loco and the loco in the siding would take the train back and the train engine would then go to the sidings etc. There is still a lot of work to be done so that probably won't be starting till next year. The whole set up would make an interesting layout and sometime in the future I will try and get hold of a track plan and draw it out and put it up here.

Thanks Mick. Sounds like it will be an organised railway once the refurbishments/track laying gets done. You are also right about a model of the Plym Valley Railway. Could be fun as you can always run what you like ! ;-)

Cheers, Gary.

That's one of the things I like about the idea Gary, and small locos could rule the roost. I've been looking for something to run my Sentinel on, and well, it is the Plymouth one. Weather permitting I'm off down there again on Sunday as they are having another running day and there are a few details at the Marsh Mills end I want to clear up. I'm not sure but I think Royal Oak has been shipped out somewhere, that is something else I want to clear up.

I don't think so Alan. Go to http://www.uksteam.info/tours/t14/t0817k.htm for the full route and times etc. From what I can make out it isn't being delayed at Dawlish Warren either. As with all of these runs it's best to be early at any point as they do have a nasty habit of running early
