8th April 2014

We return to Taunton Deane services on the M5 for another 'locomotive movement' by road on the 8th April. As part of a deal between the South Devon Diesel Traction group and Harry Needle, Class 37 No.37275 was transferred to the South Devon Railway from Barrow Hill in exchange for Class 20 No.20110. The other Class 20 No.20118 has already left the line and is now operating back on the mainline network, which was swapped for a Class 25 restoration project. The Class 73 and 20 were swtiched at Buckfastleigh on the 8th April. This impressive view shows 37275 taking centre stage at Taunton Deane southbound services on the M5, on route to Buckfastleigh.
