With the LNER festival taking place on the North Yorks Moor Railway this weekend EPZ is likely to have a fair share of Doncaster (the LNER workshops) built locomotives so in contract an upload of two of Swindon's finest engines the Castle and King class locomotives. Swindon being the birthpace of Great Western (GWR) engines. This shot shows a king and Castle double heading the Great Britain Railtour along the sea wall west of Teignmouth. The other versions show the engines in detail as they leave Penzance earlier.
