    The preserved 26007 was the visiting guest loco at the Bodmin and Wenford Railway diesel gala in September, but stayed for the rest of the season. Last Saturday 2nd November was the last day of the timetable season, although there will be plenty of steam hauled Christmas dining and Santa trains in the festive season.

    For the last day of the season, 26007 was rostered for the services, but it was an eventful day with wild weather and a loco failure in the morning, but staff went the extra mile to overcome difficulties, and 26007 had a great day. It brought back happy memories of railroving in the Highlands in the 70s, even though at the opposite end of the country! Many thanks to the diesel team at Bodmin as well as the owners of 26007, for arranging this loan of such an iconic loco.
