28th February 2005
GWR King No.6024 & No.7802 stand at Taunton on the 28th February 2005 having arrived with the 1Z24 16:44 Paignton - London Victoria charter 'The Staite Pullman'. Due to a late deparute from Paington the tour was running an hour and a half late. Upon arrival the two steam locomotives were removed from the train as the snow fell, and replaced with Western No.D1015. Becuase of the late running the the tour ran direct to Reading via the Berks and Hants route rather than via Bristol.
