18th October 2014

Steam returned to Taunton on the mainline on the 18th October, with The Railway Touring Companies 'The Dartmouth Express'. The charter operated from Poole to Bristol with a Class 47 Diesel (47237) before BR Britannia Class 7P No.70013 'Oliver Cromwell' took over for the run to Kingswear. The southbound timings for the charter were only entered into the system overnight. The locomotive is pictured running slightly ahead of schedule passing Creech St Michael leading the 1Z82 06:50 from Poole to Kingswear.
