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).


Countdown & Clan Line Test Run
Countdown & Clan Line Test Run
It is less than five weeks until the first Torbay Express of summer 2017 on Sunday 18 June - we are definitely getting excited now and looking forward to seeing our lovely coaches in the central siding at Bristol Temple Meads. 

On18 June there are just three single seats available in Premier Dining, one of which is at a table for two. We have a single First Class Plus seat available, but there are still plenty of Standard Class seats.


We have heard that steam locomotive Clan Line Number 35028 is due to have a test run in the next couple of weeks, so we are keeping our fingers firmly crossed!
