Direct Rail Services and the Northern VSOE paid an impromptu visit to the South West on the 4th December. The Northern VSOE visited Newton Abbot as part of an afternoon 'Luncheon' service from Cardiff. The prestigious train was top and tailed by Class 47/8's. No.47813 'Solent' is seen leading the 1Z69 15:08 Newton Abbot - Cardiff over Whiteball with No.47832 'Solway Princess' attached to the rear of the set. Both Class 47's are former South West based Class 47's formerly operated by First Great Western.
