Day 626: South Devon Railway, Locomotive
Reference image: Personal photo
Time taken: 35 minutes
So, its turns out that our lovely son (who’s now 16 months old!) loves trains (or Whoo Whoo’s as he calls them) so, we decided at the weekend to take him down to the South Devon Railway where they have a load of old locomotives and rolling stock that runs a old branch line that’s now privatised between Buckfastliegh and Totnes (where it meets a mainline station). Anyway he loved the whole day and looking at and riding on the trains and I managed to get a load of photos to sketch so expect them over the next few blog posts, starting with this one.
Now I’m not sure what the train actually is as I can’t find it listed on the website so I’m assuming its a relatively new locomotive that they’ve picked up. Anyway, I loved the look of it being quite fond of the old diesel haulage locomotives and think that I did the train justice in the sketch and it was fun to do, trying to get all the undercarriage details in, in the time limit (which I went over a bit on but nevermind).
So, I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did sketching it. Just wish sometimes that I could do these on site rather than from photos but keeping the little one occupied is more important!
Till next time!
