A quick reminder that tomorrow see’s the return of 60009 Union of South Africa to our cameras. Hauling the Railway Touring Company’s Plymouth Christmas market special, she will be passing around 11.06 am after a stop for 15 minutes at Dawlish Warren. Be aware that the times may well change so allow time.

The return is booked through Dawlish for 1754 by which time it will be dark. This may well give us some good visual effects from the flames as she passes.

For the Diesel fans, there should be a West Coast diesel following closely behind as back up. This is due to wait at Newton Abbot.
