Arrival at Bishops
Lydeard and a bit of smart shunting put "Black Prince"
at the rear of the train. 80136 detached and ran under the water
tank to top up while 92203 was given more coal. "Tangmere"
was then put onto the front of the train and later, as it left
for Minehead, it was banked out of the station by 92203 in spectacular
fashion - memories of Bromsgrove! The rails were wet and greasy
and the train was heavily loaded so the Battle of Britain pacific,
not best known for adhesion, was given a helping hand.
