We are delighted to announce that the Torbay Express on 4 and 11 September 2016 will be hauled by iconic Tornado No. 60163.

 

Tornado is a Peppercorn class A1 Pacific steam locomotive built by the A1 Steam Trust to the original design and which made its first public moves in steam in August 2008.


ROYAL SCOT ON STAND-BY

Just in case Lord Dowding isn't repaired in time for the last two Torbay Expresses of the season (4 & 11 September) Royal Scot will be on stand-by. We are keeping our fingers (and toes) firmly crossed!

 We were absolutely delighted that Torbay Express has been Recognised for Superior Service by TripAdvisor and has been selected for the 2016 Certificate of Excellence, reflecting the consistently great reviews we've earned on TripAdvisor.

We would like to thank all our passengers who posted lovely reviews, and all the staff and volunteer Stewards whose fabulous Customer Service skills have been instrumental in Torbay Express receiving this accolade for the second year running.

Unfortunately Lord Dowding 34052 (aka Braunton No. 34046) has developed a technical/mechanical problem so will not be available to haul the Torbay Express on 7 August. It is to be replaced by Tornado No.60163. We are looking forward to welcoming Tornado.

 

It is expected that the remaining three trains in this summer's programme (21 August - via Bath Spa, 4 September - via Weston-super-Mare and 11 September - via Bath Spa) will be hauled by  Lord Dowding, subject, as usual, to passing all the requisite tests.

Steam locomotive Lord Dowding 34052 (better known as Braunton No. 34046) has been booked to haul the remaining Torbay Express trains this summer, subject, of course, to passing all the necessary tests.

 

The next Torbay Express is on 7 August, when the route will be via Weston-super-Mare.

 


NEXT TORBAY EXPRESS

The next Torbay Express steam train to the English Riviera is on Sunday 24 July when 'Royal Scot' No. 46100 is booked to haul the train for the last  time this year, subject, of course, to passing all the necessary tests!.


From Bristol Temple Meads the route is via Bath Spa, Trowbridge, Westbury & Taunton - unfortunately Premier Dining is not available from Taunton because of timing constraints, but the journey is still fantastic!


Getting Closer!
It's now less than a week until the first Torbay Express of summer 2016 on Sunday 3rd July.

Everyone is counting down now and getting very excited!
