EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print from the STEAM Museum of the GWR, we are transported back to 1958 when the mighty Warship Class locomotive No. D800 made its debut on the tracks near Saltash in Cornwall. This particular locomotive was not just any ordinary train; it was the very first of its class and had been running on test for a few weeks before being officially introduced in August that year. As we gaze at this remarkable image, our eyes are drawn to the sheer power emanating from this diesel hydraulic beast. The imposing Warship Class locomotive exudes strength and determination as it effortlessly hauls the prestigious Cornish Riviera Express through picturesque landscapes. The setting is equally enchanting - Saltash, a charming town nestled along Cornwall's stunning coastline. The train gracefully glides across a bridge, seemingly defying gravity as it traverses over tranquil waters below. It is an awe-inspiring sight that captures both engineering marvel and natural beauty in perfect harmony. This print serves as a testament to innovation and progress within railway history. It encapsulates a momentous chapter where cutting-edge technology met timeless elegance, forever changing travel experiences for passengers aboard the Cornish Riviera Express. With every glance at this extraordinary image, one cannot help but be captivated by its historical significance and appreciate how far we have come since those early days of diesel locomotives.
