    Yes, I thought that may be the case.

    Anyway had a very nice visit to Dartmouth last week seeing 75014 and a nice surprise to see 6046 (just) as 37 had covered the morning runs.

    Was proposed, but nothing came of it. Loco needs to earn so the owner sent her Paignton. Though I'm willing to bet he just wants a reason to visit the water park at Goodrington...

    Any ideas what loco might be operating this weekend? Not fussed with the S160 but 7820 could be worth a visit...

    You could try asking them. I did this week, was told it was the Class 4 and the S160 and had a run behind each. Have to say that the USA makes light work of the climbs unlike Braveheart.

    S160 6046 was in steam today. 75014 was in the London end headshunt at Paignton with chimney cover on. Couldn't see anything else at Churston when passing through.

    I understand from a Wensleydale volunteer that it was 5197 that was proposed to visit but it is out of action.

    And has been since March... She returns to CVR for mid-July, with her next confirmed commitment being Telford's Polar XP season.

    7820 and 7827 were on yesterday. Not sure what else is available for traffic at the minute.

    Both Manors were out last week facing Kingswear. On the Monday one was being lit up at Churston, but was facing Paignton at that point.

    She's staying for the summer at least apparently. 5197 has returned CVR and we don't run often enough to offer enough work for both currently.

    It is always pleasing the hear - at certain times of wind direction - when the USA is running as her chime can be heard when at Churston or Greenway Tunnel. ;)
