Dean Forest Railway, 20th October 2013

Unfortunately the planned auto-train operated service had to be changed to DMU after failure of a tube in Pannier Tank 9681, now out of service for the remainder of the season. I used the DMU to access the Forest areas around Parkend, and later for a walk down the former Severn & Wye Railway access to Lydney Harbour.
