First Torbay Express of 2018 - Sunday, 3 June
First Torbay Express of 2018 - Sunday, 3 June

It is the first Torbay Express of this summer on Sunday, 3 June and we have caused confusion for our passengers by including the date of another train in the programme (15 July) in the letter we sent out with the Boarding Passes. We are very sorry for this error and look forward to welcoming passengers aboard on Sunday, 3 June!

 

The locomotive booked to haul this train is No. 35028, Clan Line, subject, of course, to passing all the requisite tests and nothing untoward happening. Photo by Paul Blowfield.

HOT DAY FOR FIRST TORBAY EXPRESS OF SUMMER 2017
HOT DAY FOR FIRST TORBAY EXPRESS OF SUMMER 2017

It was a scorching hot day for the first Torbay Express steam train of summer 2017; so hot and dry in fact that Network Rail imposed a steam ban and we had to run with diesel assistance. As you can see by the photo above, courtesy of Robert Sherwood, Tornado No 60163 looked magnificent, as usual.

 

The next Torbay Express is on 2 July, when Tornado will again be hauling the train (subject to the usual provisos).
