SOUTH WEST STEAM 2017
We start with The Duchess of Sutherland headed for The West Somerset Railway on The Whistling Ghost. We follow this up with Tornado hauling the first of the seasons Torbay Expresses which unfortunately had a diesel attached on the outward due to fire risk. Luckily it was put inside on the return!
46100 Royal Scot on The Dartmouth Express follows. We then head off to the Paignton & Dartmouth Railway due to the Torbay Express being diesel hauled this time. The Torbay with Tornado headed for Kingswear is our next port of call this time with Tornado providing the only traction. On a very wet day in August I awaited the A4 60009 Union of South Africa at Moreton on The Dorset Coast Express.
70013 Oliver Cromwell paid a visit to my home town of Sherborne on The Cathedrals Express and we were there! The Royal Duchy with 46100 Royal Scot provided us with a very full day of filming on The Royal Duchy culminating in the last shot at Tiverton Parkway with her running locomotive and support coach due to being a little short on coal!
The middle of August saw the return to Somerset of 60009 on the West Somerset Steam Express. Sunday 20th August saw the first of the Torbays with 35028 Clanline. She followed this up with The Atlantic Coast Express and then another Torbay. We finish up this DVD with a 4 day visit to the West Somerset Railway Autumn Gala
Running Time: 1 hour 6 minutes
