WCR Class 47/7 No. 47760 is in charge of the ECS from today's half day return steam excursion from Theale to Taunton. Working to a tight schedule it now has to get the stock back to Taunton and the waiting steam locos for the second half Taunton to Plymouth trip. After a late start from Theale it is now 20 minutes down on a schedule which envisages only 7 minutes before it sets off again from Taunton, which explains the sense of urgency as it hurries across Hungerford Common in autumnal sunshine on 4th October 2018.
