A nice couple of photographs from Barry Jones which I meant to post last week:
Some local railway interest! The Belmond British Pullman (sister train to the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express) has been on excursion from London Victoria to Cornwall this weekend. In between the journeys to and from London it has been operating local (expensive!) dining round-trips between Devon and Cornwall. As an example, dinner and a round-trip from Plymouth on the Saturday costs £280 per person!
The rear of the train passing the site of Defiance Platform (closed in 1930) near Saltash. The train was top-and-tailed with a Class 66 on the front and the two Royal Train liveried Class 67s at the rear.
The train crossing Forder viaduct near Saltash, Cornwall.
Thanks to Barry for the excellent photos.
I am always happy to show off any other interesting photos you have taken which you think may be of interest to readers!
