    Digesting things with my tablemates this morning before commencing the drive back north, I understand that The Cornish Riviera Express was given around 66 minutes to clear Exeter-Plymouth in the down direction, and that was 'pass to stop'....

    Not quite sub-hour, but approximately 13.5 minutes made on the schedule for that section. Excellent performance overall.

    Before we get too carried away there's the small matter of the return. Tricky start from Par and the restarts at Bodmin P and Liskeard none too easy either. Not forgetting Hemerdon and Dainton of course. But quick trawl of the RPS archive shows...

    Indeed. Was on the last 8F trip over Shap in 2014. Great on the uphill section, not so great on the downhill. 46115 also took a few years to settle in. Despite this, it remains a truly fine hill climber, having done Druimuachdair, Ffestiniog...

    Having participated, the 33 certainly wasn't doing much work on Upwey until the summit, and the New Forest section was the subject of fire risk rules. The carryover was not mentioned until quite a while after the trip, but seeing the videos...

    So, the 52 miles of the Exeter-Plymouth challenge is scheduled for 69 minutes out and 74 minutes return. The only previous single-headed runs I've had over the section have been with 70013 on 25 July 2009 and 12 August 2012. In 2009, we were...
