Day time sleeper
7/8/2012. Dawlish- Devon - UK
57603 failed on last night's Night Riviera from Penzance near Gwinear Road and the entire train had to be towed back to Penzance.
The service was replaced by an HST which departed Penzance at 3.20am.
I bet that pleased the punters who were expecting a good night's sleep in a bunk!
57605 which had been on the Paddington-Penzance NR sleeper is seen here passing Dawlish at 1pm with the empty sleeper stock and the errant 57603 returning to Paddington in readiness for tonight's working.
