    There being no evening sunlight Plan A was abandoned in favour of Plan B, a short drive from home. Wellington station where the exhaust blew back off the footbridge a little and then Shifnal fully 16 minutes after RTT reported departure from...

    From the timings it is the leading diesel off to Taunton. Nothing about a second move around Bristol yet but the run into the bay isn't always shown. But there's no LE move from BTM to Taunton/Norton Fitz for the return in the evening showing as...
