Okehampton - Surbiton Car carrier c.1960-66

Post by justgeoff »

Hi,
Can any one please help with the movements and timings of the above train which left Okehampton at 3.55pm. I am keen to know the motive power used and the way the train was dealt with at Exeter St Davids i.e. did it stop for a banker to ba attached etc.

Any help very much appreciated.

Thank you so much Marcus, I couldn't have asked for more! (and I'm on the search for that book!)
