Ex-GWR 4.6.0 Castle 5031 �Totnes Castle� has steam to spare as she awaits the" right away" with the up Torbay Express while the fireman hurries to the footplate with the all important tea can.
Just above the leading carriages can be seen the dockside crane which has a grab fitted to unload coal from a coaster into railway wagons for delivery to Torquay gasworks ten miles or so up the line. In the far background lies Dartmouth surrounded by tree lined hills still little changed today despite pressure from developers to cover them in houses.
Although known as a branch line the track to Kingswear was engineered to main line standard for the heaviest locomotives up to the King class and because the station was a terminus it was provided with a turntable to turn engines for the return trip up to Paddington.
A painting like this in oils on canvas of your favourite locomotive either British or American would cost about �2500.00
