On Sunday there was a double header of NunneyCastle 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.
