Not sure where to post this but:

Branch Line Society special running from Plymouth this morning out to Laira and, I think, its due to go down the branch towards Cattewater.  Full HST (High Speed Train) set top n tailed by both Laira Class 08 locos.  All profits from the trip going to a local charity.

Not sure where to post this but ...

Many thanks for posting on the Coffee Shop forum about that very unusual 'special', a-driver.  Smiley

I've now moved the topic here, simply because it relates to a specific event in Plymouth: for ease of future reference, our readers will be able to find it here on the Plymouth board, or indeed by following the redirect link I've posted in 'across the West'.

Hope this helps. CfN.  Wink

William Huskisson MP (Member of Parliament) was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.

No problem!

The profit from running this special went to Plymouth & District Mind, nearly ^8000 in total so well done all those involved down in Plymouth
