So; I was lucky.

Tornado had a stopper put on her in the middle of the week. Some little fault that didn't pass inspection.
She was due to haul the Torbay Express on Sunday - the question was Will she? Won't she? 
The answer Wait and see.
After the disappointment over the Par Express I hesitated whether to go out to Yatton Sunday morning.

Tornado enters Yatton Station.

The morning was damp and gave the best of steam and smoke as she entered the station.

                               Luck was - for once - with me.

She badgered her way through with a very brief toot of her whistle.
For once luck was favouring me.

Now I must hope and pray for the Duchess' return with her support coach on Monday.
