The Cornishman

Today we travelled on Vintage Trains 'The Cornishman' railtour from Bristol to Plymouth. 

Here we see Class 47 number D1755 arriving with the first leg of the tour from Tyseley.

GWR Hall Class 4-6-0 no 4965 Rood Ashton Hall, GWR Castle Class 4-6-0 no 5043 Earl of Mount Edgcumbe at Bristol Temple Meads waiting for the road. 

Heading along the River Teign.

The 'Castle' at Plymouth waiting for the return journey.

'The Cornishman' headboard. 

At Plymouth . . . tempting option at 1626 from the other platform!  

The 'Hall' at Bristol Temple Meads this evening. 

Smiles all round from the footplate of the 'Castle' 

With the steam heading off to the shed overnight the diesel rejoins the train for the journey to Tyseley
