In 1840 the great railway engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel built a railway line along the Devon coast.

Since that date the line has been regularly ravaged by the weather, but the one of the worse was the storm in February 2014, that washed away several hundred metres of track and severed the main rail link into the southwest of England

on the 4th April the sea wall was rebuilt and the line opened to regular passenger traffic,

on the 10th April, one of the A4's - Sir Nigel Gresley - made the first steam excursion.

This is that scene.
