|Eastern Envoy Picture Report||
On Saturday, May 15th 1999, Pathfinder tours ran 'The Eastern Envoy' tour to Par, in Cornwall. This was worked by Deltic D9000 on the way down, and steam 60800 'Green Arrow' on the way back, with the Deltic running behind. I managed to catch up with the tour when it stopped for half an hour at Plymouth. This is a photo-report of the preecedings. Yes, its not NSE, but who cares? :-)

After a 15 minute wait, during which many people had began gathering on the platforms, 60800 came into view from the distance.
until she rolled into the platform 8 of Plymouth station.
The rear of the train disappearing into the station. At this point, most people made their way up to the other end of the station, but a few of us waited behind to see D9000.
She rolled into view about 5 minutes afterwards.
