The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

LMS 6201 Princess Elizabeth at Dawlish

On a very wet 29th March 2008, with a rough sea running also, LMS 4-6-2 6201 Princess Elizabeth runs the gauntlet of the waves on Dawlish sea wall on the way to Kingswear.
The Paignton & Dartmouth Railway has built a special extension onto their turntable at Churston to be able to turn the Pacific. Were the extension not to work she would have to run to Plymouth to use the triangle.
