Although the day started with very overcast and misty conditions the sun eventually came out to give us a lovely day on the wall. We ‘ve had a few waves to the camera and a couple of unusual movements on the railway but no specials today. Colin has kindly been out and we hope you enjoy his hefty contribution to this post.

First pass today was the class 70 returning with the railvac.

Next it’s over to Colin -†Thought I would go out to Cockwood Harbour this morning to make a change from Dawlish sea wall. A bit of a misty morning with the sun trying to break through just before 10am. Nice reflection in the water of Colas 70809 passing by with the Railvac.

Cockwood harbour between the Warren and Starcross has always been a popular spot for railway photography and there was a lot of disappointment felt when the railing fence was put up. I tried to get the feel of a gentle Sunday morning by linking 5 bits of film together that were taken over about 20 minutes. One day I’ll manage to master Windows Movie maker and smooth out the transitions! The HST was on the Plymouth-Paddington service and Colas 70809 was hauling the Railvac – Colin Campbell

Yet another Rail train bound for Truro. This time with Colas 70802 in something of a hurry as it’s half an hour ahead of schedule. – Colin Campbell


And finally for today we have the Rail train passing the two cameras.
