Steam locomotive Clan Line no. 35028 is travelling to Bristol today (15 August) ready for hauling the Torbay Express on Sunday, 20 August. Keep an eye out for the steam as the loco goes by.


There are no seats left for this Sunday, but there are some available on 3 September, when Clan Line is also booked to haul the train (subject to all the usual provisos).

It is now less than four weeks until the first Torbay Express of this summer on Sunday 18 June - getting very close now!

 

We are delighted that Clan Line No. 35028 had a test run on Thursday 18 May.  She hauled one carriage and a 'dead' class 66 locomotive from Crewe to Chester and back, twice. The speed was gradually increased to around 65 mph and the test was a complete success. The next step will be visiting the paint shop, then a loaded test run with a full length train.
