Class 20 No.D8110 clears Bishops Bridge loop with the
11.05 ex Staverton to Buckfastleigh service on Sunday 31st March.
On Saturday 30th March the ‘Bobby’ on duty at Bishops Bridge Box was Luke,
who seems to be pleased that he’s successfully exchanged tablets
with the fireman of 3205 on the 10.02 ex Totnes Littlehempston.
When the small prairie was taken out of service last year due to unforeseen
circumstances an extra loco had to be hired in. Pannier 6430 made its way here
from Llangollen and served us well during the peak season and the blue timetable.
Seen here departing Staverton for Totnes Littlehempston with the 13.00 ex Buckfastleigh service on Tuesday July 24th 2012.
