The only station in the country never to receive a train on the Quay at Dartmouth (they couldn't arrange a bridge!)



Not quite... "Hull Corporation Pier" Station (Great Central Railway) never saw a train - the NER and Hull and Barnsley got closer than the GCR! It was served by railway owned ferry from New Holland and by Hull Corporation Trams.

The following day we set off to Buckfastleigh  for the Dart Valley Railway to board the Autocoach no 163 built in 1928


 
Which was to be hauled by L92 ex GWR 5786


 
Then off down the picturesque route


 
To Totnes Riverside


 
On the way back we stopped at Staverton where there was this replica of a Scalescenes model!


 
Good view from the Autocoach of the level crossing


 
Autocoach interior


 
That made two coach types that we had not travelled in before, and then back to Buckfastleigh where we found Thomas getting ready for the Bank Holiday Gala




 
And in the yard Autocoach 233 built in 1951 and its motive power Small Prairie 5542 which was being taken away? I thought it was there for the season.




 
Also lurking


 
And in the museum Brunel’s Broad Gauge "Tiny" in very impressive condition


 
And then on the way back to Dorset a stop at Fenny Bridges “The Greyhound” for refreshment recommended


 
A very enjoyable couple of days.

One odd steam trip was from Vienna to the railway museum at Sigmundsherberg, on this beastie.

I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.
