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.

Above and beyond raises funds to help Bristol city centre hospitals provide more than the NHS can. This includes creating welcoming environments, funding innovative research, supporting staff training and development, and providing state of the art equipment.
The hospitals supported include:
Bristol Royal Infirmary Bristol Haematology & Oncology Centre Bristol Heart Institute

On Wednesday 4th October 2017 three of our wonderful Stewards, John, Lesley and Keith, visited the Above and Beyond charity offices to present a cheque for the donation raised through the on-board raffles on this seasons Torbay Express. They were warmly welcomed by Catherine, the fundraising co-ordinator, and were given a brief tour of the three hospitals supported to directly see where the donation will be of benefit. They found the tour very interesting and informative and Above and Beyond were delighted with the amount raised and thanked everyone involved.
