34046 heads up the Torbay Express on 13th July 2014

Well a day of mixed fortunes chasing Braunton. Met up with my gorgeous man Andy at Fairwood Junction and got a shot there, then went off to Hillfarrance but never made it in time so continued on to Paignton for lunch and a meet up with my sis for lunch and a pint! Great shot at Cockwood on the way back courtesy of Geoff Ewens who remembered I had asked for smoke and a whistle there. Set off to Bathpool for final shot. Got caught up in departing steam rally traffic at Starcross and crawled right from there to Exeter thanks to a bloody great road roller….thanks!!! Not an unqualified succes but not a failure either.
