Basic gen from a trip west.

25262 - all day! Hellfire runs up and down an excellent line (more new track), especially liked shunting around vans/wagons at Buck. Rat was pristine and sounded excellent, even started up clean and quickly, most un-ratlike!
Buck-33002,37321,50002(electric blue-comedy),55000,20110,09002
37321/20110 trying to look as Scottish as possible- in Devon? Where are the hydraulics!?!

Bodmin Diesel Gala - 37142,20166,33110 and last and least 50042
This line is outrageous! Don't know what the gradient is but uphill all the way out of Boscarne and Parkway.... Sustained thrash at low speed, syphon especially was awesome. 20 struggled a bit even on load four!

Bowled at Liskeard as Padd-Penzance caped, finished! So had to suffer...
158745 1430 Brisol-St Erth, Liskeard-St Erth
Note Penzance shut due to enginners blockade. I rate 158s bottom of the 15x pile, but it wasn't too bad...Not a HST though, down point of trip
