Photographers start snapping away as 34067, Tangmere approaches the road bridge at Yatton, with the Royal Duchy Express.   
As she enters the stations precincts folk on the ‘down’ platform spring into action.

 
 
She cuts power and gradually comes to a halt, stopping to pick up passengers for Cornwall.


  30 minutes later Preserved locomotive ex-LNER, Mallard Class A4 Bittern  runs through Yatton station giving the folks in the “Balcony Seats” a good view as she runs under the footbridge.

/, But also giving them a taste of smoke as she zips through the station on the way to Kingswear 

A succesful day particularly because it was the last run for the Torbay Express.
