D8110 Riverford 7 January 1995

On a miserably dull 7 January 1995, D8110 passes Riverford Bridge, on the South Devon Railway. As the loco is based on the line, this could be an everyday scene, but look at the length of the train and the headboard. This is in fact the Pathfinder Tours 1Z61 06:46 Wolverhampton to Buckfastleigh 'Teign Dart' railtour, seen here retuning as the 14:25 from Buckfastleigh. The tour, which arrived from the Midlands behind 31417, also visited the nearby Heathfield branch.
