Paignton & Dartmouth Steam Railway 16 May : A bit of a whistlestop visit to the line, travelling from Paignton to Kingswear, with only 15 minutes at the other end, otherwise it was a two hour wait until the next return train. A very damp day, with a good deal of the things of interest on the railway being hidden away. Nevertheless, a pleasant ride, with some good scenery. Pity about the weather...

Teignmouth (for 4965+5043, D1015+40145) 15 May : It being a nice day, and with Teignmouth sea wall being right next to the main line, it seemed as good a place as any, especially since two specials were due today - 'Hall' 4965 + 'Castle' 5043, and D1013 + 40145. So, instead of travelling anywhere, I spent several hours by the sea, photographing anything that came past. A few shots are from other locations in Teignmouth.

Newton Abbot, Taunton & Newport 17 May : I had great plans for today, leaving from Teignmouth to Newton Abbot, all was then completely messed up by the 4-car Voyager from Newton Abbot to Cheltenham (my desired destination) being packed - I had to get off at Taunton (the seat I was in was reserved from there), just in time to not quite catch 57305+57306 anywhere; it being hot, and what with my bags, I settled for the next service to Newport, where I spent some time before giving up and going home. Newport station was going through the throes of being rebuilt, and the best places to photograph trains were out of bounds... This was Day 5 of my Freedom of the South West Rover.

Portsmouth, Southampton & Lymington 21st May : The 7th (but last) day of my 8/15 day Freedom of the South West Rover; I'd reserved today for a visit to the Lymington branch, as it was the penultimate day of the slam-door EMUs. Once more, I was presented with blue & grey 3-CIG 1497 yet again (the 3rd time in 3 visits); never mind. I stopped off at Southampton for the night, and most of the following day. There are a just a couple of shots from Brockenhurst and Bournemouth, and a few more taken when I returned from Southampton the following evening (22nd May) as well.
