We continue with regular trains on the great (and windy) Royal Albert Bridge at Saltash near Plymouth. Sadly the Great Britain II was heavily delayed, so we only could catch it entering Plymouth station with 34067 "Tangmere" - SR Battle of Britain Class 4-6-2 (instead of 5029 "Nunney Castle" which should have been running) and 70013 "Oliver Cromwell" - BR Britannia Class 7P 4-6-2 in charge. Via CrossCountry HST to Birmingham the overnight stop was Shrewsbury where in the morning two loco hauled passenger trains are almost meeting: Wrexham & Shropshire with class 67 and the Arriva Wales service Holyhead - Cardiff pulled by a class 57. The rest of the morning was spent on the scenic Llangollen museum railway at Llangollen and Glyndyfrdwy where 6430 - GWR class 6400 0-6-0PT did its duties, the nearest mainline station is Ruabon.
