Saphos Trains has announced that there will be a locomotive change for this weekends tour.
70000 Britannia has not passed her Fitness To Run exam for tomorrows ECS move to Bristol.
This now means that 34046 Braunton will be standing in for the Britannia instead.
34046 has been in the guise of 34052 ‘Lord Dowding’ for the last four years and is currently undergoing the process of changing back to 34036 Braunton. The work for isn’t yet complete and still needs a full repaint and lining.
This is a rare sight to see a steam locomotive on the mainline in ex-works condition.
Braunton is currently making her way to Bristol tomorrow with her stock. Here is the timings:
Have fun if you are seeing her today!
