    And two class 91



















    On with the Hammersmith & City line to London Paddington:



    HST at Paddington



















    Refurbished HST-meeting



























    The last HST of the day at 21:45 to Exeter, with old engine at the westbound end



    The Night Riviera Sleeper to Penzance was being shunted to the platform with a class 57 at each end



    But was only pulled by 57605, my coach was right behind the loco. Here the train can be seen ready for departure at Exeter St. Davids



    Impression from Exeter



    Finally at Dawlish



    A HST in the distance



    My train with class 150 and 153 leaves towards Paignton











    An Adelante passes







    This section will soon be underwater, I could still walk past it



    At 6:22, the first train of the day from Plymouth to London Paddington via Bristol















    Shortly later the next HST from Plymouth











    And a class 180 Adelante as fastest morning connection Plymouth - London



























    Now some local traffic between Exeter and Paignton with class 150

    Beautiful shots Roni. Your composition is excellent. I'm especially fond of the shots where the rising sun is reflecting of the trains. Well done!
