South-western sweep - 26 August 2013

I had visited a number of lines in June but had missed seeing steam in action at two of them. A phone call revealed that a different one would be in use at the third. So that was all the excuse I needed to do a 'south-western sweep'.

At the Devon Railway Centre, their 1912 Orenstein and Koppel had been commissioned and was operating on the tiny line.

The small carriages will give way to ones of original
