Tornado Exeter - Plymouth under the hour - Posted: June 24, 2019 - 9:01 AM Quote and reply
Yesterday Tornado ran Exeter to Plymouth in 59m 35s during Pathfinder's Summer Cornishman Railtour. This is believed to be an all time record with steam.

Load only 9 compared with the 10 taken by Clan Line last year in 62m 20s and Duchess of Sutherland earlier this year in under 62 mins on RTC's Great Britain.

36-35 mph into Dainton Tunnel and 35 minm on Tigley.
