Torbay Express 2012. Bittern by Tyrie2001 Torbay Express 2012. Bittern by Tyrie2001
During a temporary lull in the rain at Burlescombe, LNER Class A4 locomotive, No 4464 (60019) Bittern thunders around the bend pulling the Torbay Express.

This shot was taken earlier today (Sunday, August 19th 2012), a few hours before I was due to come home from the weeks holiday at my Grans place

Can you remember the engine name? Maybe she was the "Sir Nigel Gresley" ?

The engine name is in the the title of the picture, and the artists comments section. It's called the "Bittern"

beautiful shot but those look like GWR coaches
Reply

That's correct, the coaches used on the Torbay Express are Mark I coaches in GWR liveries
