A visit to the South Devon Railway for their Easter Gala on 4th April 2010. A highlight was the visit of two locomotives from a mainline special, Nos. 44871 and 70013 Oliver Cromwell, which were booked to spend the night at Buckfastleigh. Naturally, they were expected to earn their keep, though Black Five No. 44871 was to suffer a mishap when its tender wheels derailed near Nappers Crossing though fortunately without serious damage to either locomotive or track.
