Lifted the safety valve on departure from Bath Spa and it stayed lifted for some time, rather masking the exhaust beat from the locomotive.

With a southerly wind, no opportunity for the 'Coal-fired loco exhaust scent' to make its way up the half mile or so from Bath Spa station into Lyncombe Vale as happened once before, finding me as I happened to be waiting in the autumn dusk on the old trackbed there, on the little viaduct just before Combe Down Tunnel - the scent causing an unexpected scalp-tingling, on account of being a once commonplace event there now so rare and so distant.
