Over the Diamond Jubilee Weekend 5542 was working on the South Devon Railway.  She worked a 2 coach "local passenger" set, light work suitable for running in and settling in after her just completed 10 Year Overhaul.

This page has a selection of photos of her at work on Monday 4 June 2012.

5542 arriving at Buckfastleigh

Much of her working kept her on the Totnes-Staverton section but in the afternoon she worked through to Buckfastleigh.

A photo of the much talked about roundell which also shows the quality of the paint finish - including the photographers reflection!

She has now shunted across to leave the loop clear for running round.

Cake for shareholders

A party from the Locomotive 5542 group travelled on 5542's next working, this is the chocolate cake we enjoyed during it!
