    Clan Line has safely arrived at Bristol ready for tomorrow's final TE of the season.

    35028 looking as immaculate as ever. <BJ>

    Torbay weather, according to the Beeb:
    Sunny intervals with moderate breeze and 19C, so tomorrow looks a decent day for the visit.

    Clan Line seen powering through Flax Bourton tunnel at 09:23 with the final TE of the season.

    Plenty of black clag belching from the loco, unusual for Clan Line. 11 coaches today.

    A magnificent sight, sound and smell.

    Many thanks to TBEL, DBC, the MNLPS and support team. <BJ>

    Looks as though Clan Line was in a hurry between WSM and TAU today. Even time or thereabouts.

    You are all in for a gloriously warm and sunny day. I hope you brought you swimming trunks and buckets and spades if you have children.
    Otherwise a short river trip might be welcome. :)

    Even time very difficult to get on that section due to slow start and finish.

    Clan Line on the return to BTM crossing the Exe at Upton Pyne and at Rewe . Let’s hope for more Devon rain next year to avoid diesel assistance !
