Yes it if for FLHH on Tuesdays IIRC. Otherwise it is Hackney yard. There is a good vantage point at a level crossing on a back road near Trago Mills. Also the main road into Kingsetignton if you are interested. I think it's night workings though. Not worth it really. Just stay at newton bbot

Freightliner have never visited Heathfield! Occassionally one of their 66s will park on the junction of the branch at Newton Abbot, but they normally use Hackney Yard out to the east of the station. The Moorswater cement traffic is suspended until the new year anyway.... EWS visit Heathfield as the clay works still produces a small amount of rail bourne traffic, however this is very erratic. 6C43 the 17:57 St.Blazey to Exeter Riverside is booked via Heathfield Tuesdays and Thursdays(?), but depending on traffic requirements, therefore it often doesnt visit Heathfield. As 6C43 recesses at Tavistock Jn Yard (Plymouth) if it was to go Heathfield it will now be in the darkness with the nights pulling in! Hope this helps.. Nat
