    It was October last year and they announced 60103 Flying Scotsman was going to be visiting Cornwall for the first time ever!

    Both me and my boy were so excited, when the time came we got into position 2 hours early and it's a good job we did as there were hundreds of people at every location!

    The weather was terrible so it's first trip in the morning was diesel assisted (shame) then the second visit the same day (it went back to Plymouth and then came back) was a double header with another steam train which they said wasn't going to happen so I wasn't expecting it.

    So here are 3 of my images from two trips (when it came the other way it was being dragged by a diesel so I didn't photograph it). DSC_0028 (2).jpg DSC_0082.jpg DSC_0088.jpg

    Nice work, Ash. I know your boy has always been enamoured by the steamers, so i bet he had a great time, lousy weather or not. I can't decide between the second or third here, which one I prefer. both are great compos.

    Thank you so much Roger he really loves them and FS especially! He has two favourite steam loco's one being the Flying Scotsman and the other being Tornado and we have now managed to see both in two years and we even managed to go on Tornado.

    Thank you.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Mike me to and steam loco's don't usually steam through there so I was over the moon this one did!

    The double header last shot is my favourite but curious about that and the DH diesel... Why the need Ash, overlong set or heavy gradients perhaps ?

    Thank you, I think it was due to the Devon banks and the Cornish line has some of the steepest gradients so just being over careful on her first ever visit.

    The steam double header was supposed to be with Mayflower (another pretty famous loco) but was changed last minute sadly.
