Pathfinder Tours
North Wales

Train postponed to 07/10/2006 due (from Pathfinder Website): "to the featured steam engine for the Day 71000 'Duke of Gloucester' still being unavailable to haul the train, due to the owners not completing the repair work schedule. We did source a replacement steam locomotive, in the shape of 46201 'Princess Elizabeth', to work the tour but, unfortunately, it has proved highly impractical to move this engine from the North-West to Exeter and back, just for this one trip".

Planned route & locos:

Loco Route
diesel Slough - Rerading - Didcot - Swindon - Chippenham - Bath Spa - Bristol Temple Meads - Taunton - Exeter St Davids
steam : 71000 Exeter St Davids - Plymouth - Par
steam : 71000 Par - Plymouth - Exeter St Davids
