today the diversity of train types is much reduced, a good variety
is still available. All main line passenger trains are now formed
of either Arriva CrossCountry Class 220 or 221 stock or HST formations, local services
are formed of Class 142, 143, 150, 153, and 159 DMUs. In terms of locomotive activity,
examples of Classes 47, 57, 66 and 67 are seen. The Class
57s are in charge of First Great Western overnight sleeper trains
on the Paddington-Penzance corridor. DBS and Freightliner Heavy Haul operated Class 66s are the
mainstay of power for the few remaining freight services which traverse
the Sea Wall.
This guide provides information on where to take pictures of trains on the Sea Wall route, all areas mentioned are open to the public, however, could visitors to the area have a little respect for private property which surrounds the railway for most of its route. If you do use any of the gated crossings over the line please make sure the gates are closed behind you.
