...the last 'spamcan' to work Southern metals west of Exeter was
Wadebridge with a brake van tour to Meldon Quarry on 11th December 1964
(until Tangmere visited Okehampton on 4th October 2003)?
...the last normal steam working to arrive at Exeter was rebuilt WC
Nº34032 Camelford with the 1:00 p.m. Waterloo-Exeter, returning with
the 7:45 p.m. "perishables" to Nine Elms, on 29th November 1965?

"Withered Arm" lines north of Meldon Junc.?

replaced because Nine Elms drivers didn't like them?
