An A4 on Teignmouth sea wall

LNER A4 4-6-2 60009 Union of South Africa exits Parsons Tunnel onto Teignmouth sea wall in Devon. 60009 had to have a new headboard for the Torbay Express as the existing one was found to be too long and was damaging the paintwork.

Superb photo! Thanks, John. More from that viewpoint, please.

Nice of you to say that Peter.
The tunnel is also known as Smuggler's and the lane down to it is Smuggler's Lane. It has been out of bounds to me for a couple of years due to my hip problems but now I am back walking again this is one of my walks and along the sea wall to Teignmouth so you never know I might manage the odd photo or two next year.
