GWR Class 43 power car No. 43188 'The Welshman' heads a specially formed five car consist for a tour from Okehampton to Weymouth and return on 14th September 2019. At the opposite end of the train 43194 'Okehampton Castle' had earlier been so named at Okehampton prior to departure. The unusual sight of a short rake GWR HST climbing Honiton Bank at Wilmington depicts the return working from Weymouth which unlike the outbound run was routed via Yeovil Junction / Axminster for Exeter and Okehampton.
