On the Dartmouth Steam Railway in Devon.
It is a glorious summers day near Broadsands. The sea is sparkling in the distance and seagulls wheel overhead. The sounds of a hard working engine are carried on the breeze mingling with the sounds of crickets in the dry grass. Rounding the curve G.W.R 7800 Class No.7827 'Lydham Manor' heads powerfully past, climbing up the gradient and over Hookhills Viaduct towards Churston with a train for Kingswear.

In a field overlooking Hookhills Viaduct an engine is faintly heard approaching up the steep gradient from Goodrington Sands. G.W.R 7800 Class No.7827 'Lydham Manor' appears from the trees and heads past towards Churston with a Kingswear train.

G.W.R 7800 Class No.7820 'Dinmore Manor' coasts down the gradient towards Goodrington Sands whistling as it passes, it's coupling rods ringing as it slows prior to the station stop.

Nearer to Goodrington by the lineside a train is faintly heard calling at Goodrington Sands. The train gets the right away after picking up some passengers and G.W.R 7800 Class No.7820 'Dinmore Manor' punches past up the gradient towards its next call at Churston, the sounds echoing off the surroundings. Children can be heard having fun at the nearby Splashdown Waterpark Quaywest.
