A smokey departure from Chard Junction for the preserved Hastings DEMU numbered as set 1001 when it visited the west country on 4th April 2024. As always this popular heritage unit attracted much attention throughout the day. DMBS No.S60118 'Tunbridge Wells' assisted by S60116 'Mountfield and S60119 at the rear depart with the returning (14:40) Exeter Central to Hastings 'THE COGLOAD CLIMBER' railtour following a booked pathing stop. Earlier in the day the outbound run used the Berks and Hants route to Cogload Junction for Exeter stations St.Davids and Central.
