PENNINE MAGAZINE No.81 SEPTEMBER 1992
THE-'HONEST JOHN' SHOWWe're seeing so much of 'Honest John' theses days that it is rumoured he's putting in more appearances at the Pennine than he is at work and being that every other social evening now features 'Treasurer Treasurer' we must have seen every slide he owns five times I hear you cry. Still every show is a good 'un - the old 'uns are always the best!

Unfortunately the boat failed one mite out and was rescued by the Weymouth Lifeboat which 'Dragged' the failed Cruiser back to Weymouth Quay. Hands up all those who have had a pair into Weymouth Quay!STEAM BEFORE BREAKFAST
by Paul Slater
I have never been much of an early riser, especially on holiday, so it is amusing to remember that during one stay at the seaside I voluntarily left my bed on several occasions so that I could enjoy train-spotting sessions before breakfast. It was during the summer of 1959 when I was fifteen years of age. The weather was warm and sunny throughout the fortnight with days being taken up on the beach and on family outings. Therefore the early mornings were the best time for me to go and watch the trains. This summer I was making my first real attempts at Railway photography, steam trains were in abundance at the two towns we stayed at during our seaside holiday and the bright morning sunshine gave me good lighting for my rather basic and antiquated bellows camera. I still look back with pleasure at the pictures I took on those pre breakfast sessions 33 years ago.
For the first half of the fortnight we stayed at the coastal town of Exmouth and the station was only a short walk through the streets from our hotel. Exmouth station was the terminus of two single track branches, one from Exeter and the other from Tipton St Johns on the Sidmouth Line. Exmouth station had two long island platforms so four lengthy trains could be accommodated at once, a small engine shed was adjacent and this was a sub-depot of Exmouth Junction. One evening we saw two locomotives on the shed and these were London Midland 2-6-2T 41307 which was very familiar to me from the branch lines in Northamptonshire whilst the other engine was an old ex London & South Western " 0-4-4T no. 30323. I saw both these engines working out of Exmouth that week and in fact I photographed 30323 waiting to Leave with an Exeter train on one of my early morning visits to the station.
Another type of Locomotive common on the East Devon Branch lines at that time was the BR Standard Class 3 2-6-2T and the second photograph I took at Exmouth station showed one of these engines, 82013, heading a train for Plymouth via Exeter, Okehampton and Tavistock.
We moved to Penzance for the second half of our fortnight holiday and I continued my pre-breakfast train-spotting sessions here. It was quite a long walk from our Hotel to Penzance station but it was very pleasant in the early morning sunshine. The walk took me along the sea front and then by the harbour, with views across the water to St Michael's Mount. Two overnight expresses from Paddington would usually arrive whilst I was at the station along with one or two trains awaiting departure and the station pilot, a "94xx" 0-6-0 pannier tank would often have been fussing around.
The first Western Region diesel-hydraulics were starting to appear on the expresses in Cornwall at that time and I noted examples of the North British Type 2 and 4 classes numbered in the D6300 and D600 series during my early morning sessions.
There were though still plenty of the distinctive Great Western 4-6-Os also to be seen - "Castles" "Counties", "Halls" and "Granges, and as these were always my favourite steam Locomotives I was very pleased to be able to get a few photos of them. I especially like a snap I got of 6826 "Nannerth Grange" standing in the bright sunshine with a departure to Swansea and another one, dramatically lit, of 5058 "Earl of Clancarty" backing out with the empty stock of an overnight express from Paddington.
PRESERVATION NEWS by Pitsmoor Pete
A family holiday at Barmouth in
1960, when I was sixteen, gave me a chance to see an interesting
railway backwater in the final years of steam. Barmouth, then as
now, was one of the principal towns on the Cambrian coast line from
Machynlleth to Pwllheli and was a passing place on the largely
single track route. Some trains started at or terminated at Barmouth
whilst others ran through to Pwllheli.
