90 mins late off Par........

There any news on the Westerns light move back to Bristol?
34067 and 70013 over the Royal Albert Bridge at 16.56. Tried to get a picture, but the webcam screenshot took too long! #-o
Just left Plymouth at 18.15..........
pAST STARSROSS @ 19:08 going well viewed on web cam
FANTASTIC>>>>> D.Warren---whistling. Will try to load a phot later. My missus was waving t flag!!!!!!!!
Ah, Ray, we were the other end of your platform, certainly was going well thorugh there!! Shame about the wind direction though!!!
Western followed up to exeter, but rumours are that there will be a drivers break, so possibly following the Tour up
Would I be right in thinking that an estimated arrival time at Bristol Temple Meads to be 21:45?
Western now infront of Steam, through Taunton 20:07 apparently
Approximately, depending on the watering at Exeter, if was running approx 90mins late, yes..
Up through Taunton at 20.28 at speed......
Well, what a fantastic day! Just got my best vid ever at tivvy! Absolutely fantastic,the racket was truly brilliant! Also got some high quality stuff at both liskeard and dawlish.
Many,many thanks to pat,jeff,robin and nick for putting up with my stream of calls and thanks to you for providing me with the gen! It was well worth it!!
some photos of the tour at http://keyhamtrain.fotopic.net
Will the delayed finish tonight mean any crew, especially support crew, will have problems gettinmg rest time in before the start in the morning I wonder?
They will probably have no difficulty sleeping, thats if they get the opportunity to. If you meet any of them tomorrow, be full of thanks and praise, they deserve lots of it!
My video of today just uploaded..
Not as many locations as I would have liked, but nevermind eh, HERES TO NEXT YEAR!!! \/
Another eventfull day. Saw the train at 5 locations, video tomorrow. I have to say the sights and sounds were first class. Thanks to all who made it happen.
Great vid Glen,some great shots!
Due to the slow internet my vid has not got the quality i would have wanted,but it is still viewable,but just listen at those locos!!!!!

That is a cracking shot of the Western. Nice choice of location. Never done it myself but I must do in the future.
