D1015 works a light loco movement from Exeter St Davids to Par in connection with the 'Cornish Riviera' charter from London Paddington to Penzance

43303 leads 43384 on 1V54 0700 Glasgow Central - Newquay, one of only two XC HSTs presently operational on Saturdays past Exminster, not far from Exeter

A pair of 142s accelerate along the long straight towards Starcross with the 1523 Exmouth - Paignton service, not too long left for these units in the South West

Not too far behind was 43132 'We Save The Children Will You?" on the 1406 Paddington - Penzance

Running approximately 30 minutes late after problems earlier with the coal, and a generator van fire, 6024 King Edward leads 5029 Nunney Castle on 1Z28 1553 Exeter St Davids - Par, past a very warm Exminster

Near to Powderham castle, a 'Super Voyager' (if you can justify calling them super!) passes a foot crossing with the 1625 Plymouth - Leeds service

The delayed 1653 Exmouth - Paignton service is seen crossing the causeway at Cockwood harbour, as the tide slowly advances in. It was unfortunate that a lineside fire in Cornwall caused big delays to the tours due to pass not long after

Running a few minutes behind time, the 1A92 1703 Paignton - Paddington service accelerates across the causeway on what was a very warm and sunny day, rain please!

A wide view of the little village of Cockwood, as the 1725 Paignton - Exmouth passes the small harbour, which only contains water at high tide
