Lydham Manor

Lydham Manor (ex Great Western Railway locomotive) in British Rail mixed traffic black livery drifts into Kingswear with the regulator all but closed.



The British Rail designed Standard Class 7 Britannia leaves Kingswear with a barking exhaust beat that echoed off the hills on either side of the estuary, steam at its most romantic. The driver is looking to gain as much speed as possible before he has to tackle the 1 in 50 incline up to Churston which starts in about 1 mile.
