    Today we had the last Steam Special into Plymouth until 4th April next year. It was the Plymouth Christmas Market and was hauled by 60009 'Union of South Africa'. Images captured in between showers and heavy cloud. Also included are a few shots of Class 800 Nos 800 025 & 800 019. Hope you like them

    Excellent set of pics. I missed the earlier pics dated 26th October, but I will say that No. 70816 on 'The Moorswater Cement' locos are ugly beasts. I just hope they're more functional than what there looks say about them ! :lol:

    Great pics of 60009 UoSA, just a pity about the weather. :thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:

    Cheers, Gary.

    With reference to 60009 Union of South Africa. From what I can gather it is being retired early in the New Year and going into a museum.

    That is sad news for Union of South Africa. Hopefully it won't stay static for too long.

    Cheers, Gary.
