Unusually the test train stopped in Teignmouth station for half an hour last night which gave Nick chance to photograph it as well as taking a video which gives a better look at the 9701 ultrasonic test train. It had  come down from Bristol High level siding and was going as far as Paignton before returning to Exeter Riverside New Yard to stable for the rest of the night. The engine powering the test train from the rear  was Colas 37025 “Inverness TMD” in it’s retro Large logo BR Blue livery.

The High output ballast Cleaner train was in action again last night and appeared on the line chart to be very close to Teignmouth. Hopefully it will be working through the station soon to give us the opportunity to record it in action.
