50029 Shaldon Bridge 15 September 1991

In connection with the Laira Open Day on Sunday 15 September 1991, the 1V09 08:55 Waterloo to Exeter St Davids Network SouthEast service was extended to Plymouth. Making a welcome return to once familiar haunts, 50029 Renown is pictured running alongside the River Teign estuary at Shaldon Bridge in glorious sunshine. It seems that most of the passengers onboard are Class 50 enthusiasts, and no doubt cursing the non opening windows in the air con Mk 2 coach, which is also spoiling the otherwise uniform NSE livery of the train.
