    Is it planned for 6023 to face Kingswear for the remaining running dates or is it going to be turned to face Paignton for some?

    I noticed watching a video that the South Devon have DMU trailer 59004 on the line, is it on hire or has it been sold?

    Not sure if its looking too great for the railway for someone to be sat almost on top of tender above the cab on the King, as seen in film at 13:20 to 13:26....

    Certainly is 7827 running this weekend. There is a post on here when the King is running though.
