Away from running its normal Scottish tours the Royal Scotsman has reached as far as Newton Abbot in Devon to enable the passengers to get a look at the famous sea walls of Dawlish and Teignmouth. Not the best of mornings being rather dull but at least it wasn’t the torrential rain that was forecast for most of the daylight hours. Normally there are two dedicated locos on the train but today GBRf livery 66744 named “Crossrail” accompanied 66746. The train had come from Gloucester and was timed to go as far as Newton Abbot where the locomotives would change ends and return so that the passengers could enjoy the view of the sea whilst eating breakfast. How the other half live!
