YREA Videofest and the Class 142 Farewell

The Youth Rail Enthusiasts Association 'Videofest' has been and gone for another, and so to have the final Class 142 Pacers from the region. I'm a majority of you will have already seen the photos I took on the day, but if not please do click the link below here. The video above was my entry to the Videofest this year, also giving you an overview of the day. Really fitting tribute to this Class 142 though, it really was one of those unforgettable days. Everything just worked perfectly, despite some technical hitches with 142068, my personal favorite! Huge thanks to all involved at First Great Western for making the day so successful, and enjoyable!

The Beeching Report wasn't published until 1963 so you can't blame him for the closure of the Moretonhampstead Branch in 1959 and the Teign Valley line in 1958!

Fair cop, it was actually BR's 'Modernisation Plan' rather than Beeching!
