I found these u-tubes which are recent and rather well filmed. l did like 75014 working hard up Goodrington Bank!

 

 

 

Thanks for those John, 

 

I do like the Pannier with 7 up pulling with a nice little side to side action too ! Cracking little locomotive.

Whilst boat painting on the marina yesterday there were some interesting movements of the King.

 

She was first observed chimney first, then tender first and then double heading with 7827 all in one day!

 

I can only assume that 7827 was on a running-in turn and that 6023 was turned for the returning home journey...but no she was in service today....!

6023 made a spectacular sound leaving Greenway Halt pulling up Churston Bank!

 

A run to Kingswear prior to the 12 coach 'test' train.

A film of 6023 on the eleven coach test train plus a 'ticking over' 25 at the rear. 

 

It was departing Greenway Halt passing under the Kennel Lane bridge just down the line from Churston Station.

In addition to apparently a class 37 replacing the class 25 the Dartmouth Steam Railway has a colourful December planned for this year:

The P & D have bought 4110 off the WSR and here she is arriving at Churston this week. After an overhaul she will join the roster. An option to attend the WSR as a visiting loco at one of their galas has been agreed.

A little bird tells me another Manor will be visiting this line for the summer season. 7820 Dinmore Manor and will work in tandem with Lydham. It has worked the line before as the photo shews.

Not really fond of Manors painted black but the scenery makes up for it!

In which livery they were when I first saw them.As built by BR ? Maybe the later examples.BR black reminded one of Henry Ford’s edict on his Model T.Then they mutated to green as did Gresley’s V2 in the mid 1950’s and almost every WR loco until the great cull of the early 1960’s by the general manager whose name is still uttered with loathing to this day.

We travelled on the DSR to Churston for the Torbay steam fair, which as usual was an excellent show with fine food and some unusual ciders! There was a 45mins delay at KW due to a fire in up in Longdown Woods at which the railway fire train was in attendance. 

 

A few snaps of the day.
