    The Tour somewhere in cornwall, then between plymouth and exeter, and possibly above exeter somewhere, unsure as to where yet though!

  6. Great bit of video. Very atmospheric. Cant help but feel for the crew of 5029 though, seeing her go past.

    Thanks for that.
    Was going out to see Tangmere bringing the 2 support coaches up early,
    as was planned with 5029, but won't need to now.

    Would I be correct in thinking Tangmere is leading because Cromwell is vac braked only?

    I would say so as Western Champion was on the front for the same reason. (Cromwell is piped-through)

    Both wrong - the set is dual-braked and is being worked in vacuum throughout. Hobson's Choice as to which loco is leading.
