The Torbay Express also differed on Sunday 24th July, after 'Royal Scot' failed its fitness to run exam while on shed at Bristol. With no suitable alternative steam locomotive in place, and no heritage diesels operated by DB Schenker the nearest alternative locomotive was a Class 66. No.66093 was provided for the 1Z27 Bristol Temple Meads to Kingswear and back, taking many of those at the line side by surprise. The loco is seen arriving back into Taunton after its day out at the Devon coastal resorte!
