35028 at Dundas
35028 'Clan Line' rushes past Dundas near Bath with 1Z27, 0800 Bristol Temple Meads to Kingswear 'Torbay Express' on 19 August, 2018. The train had left Bristol 12 late (overrunning engineering works) but despite behind held behind an IET set (!), 35028 had reduced the defecit to 9 minutes when it passed me, and it reached Taunton 9 early! By contrast, the IET, also delayed at Bristol, managed to recover none of its 25 minute delay by the time it arrived at Paddington. One could make comments about 'progress', but I'll resist that!
