Blast from the past?

Today saw quite a revival of old locomotives across the southwestern mainline. 3 classic/vintage (whatever you want to call them) trains were on a railtour across the region. At Plymouth alone there were around 50 at the station to see D1015 Western Champion and the 2 steamers Oliver Cromwell and Tangmere. Nunny Castle had failed 2 days earlier and therefore Tangmere was brought down and ran from Bristol to Par and then back to Bristol. Pictures show D1015 standing in between Platforms 4 and 5 at Plymouth and the other of Tangmere leading the double header back to Bristol. The full video will be available on youtube in the near future. Was great to see some 'proper' trains on the line!!
