Tamar Devonian with 'Duke of Gloucester 71000' & 'Tornado 60163'

A selection of pictures from Saturday 28 July of the Tamar Devonian railtour. Firstly we see class 67 'Royal Sovereign' arriving at Bristol from Hampshire where the tour started. If every train was this length there'd be no overcrowding on our rail network and probably fewer cars on the road . .  

Duke of Gloucester comes off shed to take up position on the front of the tour. Behind her, hidden by steam is A1 Pacific Tornado. These are the last 2 mainline express locomotives to be built - although nearly 60 years apart!

Ready for the off at Bristol.

On return to Bristol in the evening the steam loco's were replaced by the 67 for the journey back home.
