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).

Sadly Summer came early this year and we were diesel led on the outward journey.

However, Torbay Express, yet again, did a lot of work behind the scenes and we were proudly led by Tornado on the return.

Well done to all concerned, it was a great day!😀
