 On Sunday there was a double header of Nunney Castle and Braunton, hauling the “Round Britain” leg from Cornwall to Bristol. I went to Yatton station because the weather was not too good and if it were to rain heavy at least there was a station with some platform cover. The damp air kept the steam down — maybe a little too much. I sometimes like to take shots from the crossing bridge, if I had tried that this time all I would have got was a steam cloud. Managed to get a set of 3 groups, Just, and only just, manged the closer ones. They were certainly travelling fast. Right on time too. Nice to see Nunney Castle on her home lines.
I won’t bother to go to Pilning to get the LMS class 5 — too early in the morning and the M5 motorway will be chock-a-block with commuter traffic.
