    I understand the Scot's support coach is bringing the parts to fix Braunton. Once repaired, the two will do some loaded test runs there top and tailed. (Second hand info, so don't shoot the messenger if I'm wrong)

    Nice one, cheers Robin, I’m sure the old man’ll be out with his camera then.

    Take 2 at Snedshill, 45231.
    Autumnal tints but no sun, and although warm the exhaust still masks the tunnel mouth.

    Lovely, that. If I'm honest I found myself more drawn to the surroundings than the loco, but a great seasonal photo.

    Surreal ?, - the autumn colours have developed since the shot of Braunton 3 weeks ago.

    I would imagine the afternoon ECS will be involved. Unsure though whether it would be one black 5 or two. If it were two 5s they wouldn't have a back up loco for the extended season so I would imagine it is one black 5 with the afternoon ECS which hasn't been used for weeks.
