Castle No.5055 Earl of Eldon sets off from Newton Abbot with the Up Devonian on 19th July 1958.

Peter Kerslake adds "Old Oak's 5055 heads past Newton Abbot's impressive East Box with the racecourse behind as it lifts the 'Devonian' away. It will work through to Bristol Temple Meads where it will hand over to a London Midland Region engine, usually a 'Jubilee'.
Leaving Paignton at 9.15 a.m. the Devonian will head up the former MR line to Birmingham, calling at Derby, Sheffield and Leeds before terminating at Bradford."
