Seaside bound Steam Trains on Sunday
« on: September 01, 2013, 11:27:28 PM »
Been busy today with my camera... :camera:

These two trains left Bristol Temple Meads this morning 15 mins apart, heading for the far South West...

The Royal Duchy


The Torbay Express ('Braunton' up front)
If it's got rails... you have my full, undivided attention - Steam, diesel and electric, 'tis all good !

Great Pics Mike  :thumbsup:

It seams that the Royal Duchy had its fair share of problems yesterday  :hmmm:

First off the class 47 failed (ran out of fuel allegedly )

Then the Black5 developed a problem, watch from 3:10

44932 / Royal Duchy / 01-09-13

My Dad said it sounds like the Valve timing has slipped
He used to work at Horwich works so he should have an idea  :hmmm:

Am I the only one expecting Dick Van Dyke to come dancing out of the smoke singing "Chitty Bang Bang" ?   :P
