‘Buf­fer Puffer’ takes ‘20s’ to un­likely lo­ca­tions

Rail (UK) - - Network News - CHRIS MOR­RI­SON

Two GB Rail­freight Class 20s (hired from Harry Nee­dle Rail­road Com­pany) were used on Pathfinder Tours’ ‘The Buf­fer Puffer 13.0’ char­ter on Au­gust 20. The train, top-and-tailed by 20107 and 20314, ran from Eastleigh-Lyming­ton Pier-Eastleigh-Lon­don Water­loo-Sheer­ness-East­bourne-Brighton-Lit­tle­hamp­ton-Bog­nor Regis-Portsmouth Har­bour-Water­loo-Eastleigh. This took the '20s' to routes rarely vis­ited by lo­co­mo­tive-hauled trains, with '20s' also an un­com­mon sight on the for­mer South­ern Re­gion. With BR blue 20107 lead­ing, the '20s' cross Kings Ferry Bridge at Swale, with the Sheer­ness-East­bourne leg of the char­ter.
