On Monday evening the GWR green livery 9-car Intercity Express train 802101 came down from Stoke Gifford to Laira Depot. On Tuesday and Wednesday nights it had runs to Penzance and back to prove that the train fitted into the railway infastructure with regard to Platform signage and the clearances etc. This is necessary to enable the train to be certificated to run in regular service.
Last night (Thursday 25th) it returned from Plymouth to Stoke Gifford and was videoed by Nick Campbell as it passed through Teignmouth station.
In the station yard is the renovated station footbridge which hopefully will soon be reinstalled and allow the rather unsightly temporary footbridge to be removed.
