There are always some downsides to every upside! For railway enthusiasts this summer's magnificent sunny weather has caused Britain's landscape to feature much dried and parched vegetation, something which ignites from the slightest spark. Sadly, sparks are almost impossible to eliminate from steam locomotives so almost all main line as well as many heritage trains scheduled for steam have had to be diesel hauled, although sometimes, as on Sunday 15th July at Westbury, a steam locomotive is put on ahead of the diesel to at least look like it is powering the train! No. 60009 "Union of South Africa" was emitting smoke, but it was really just for show as it went from Bristol to Kingswear.
