33207 & D6515 (33012) pass Walton-on-Thames heading west. Class 33s were the main motive power on Waterloo - Exeter services from the early 1970s to the early 1980s. However 33/2s and double headers were not often seen.<br>[&copy; Adrian Palmer 2020]

West Coast Driver Bill Monteith is fund-raising for the charity Tommy's, a cause close to his heart, and had asked if our participants would sponsor him on a charity run. £500.33 was raised from our generous tour participants much to the great delight of Bill, seen here in the centre being presented with the cash during a brief stop at Bristol Temple Meads P9 in the evening for a crew change on the way back to London.<br>[&copy; Geoff Plumb 2020]
