Photo and Video, 37602 and 37609 on 4M36 “Tesco Express”, Old Hill 31/05/17

The 66 hauling the southbound train failed in the Birmingham area and 2 x Class 37s were sent to haul the train to Wentloog. Fortunately the same 2 locos were used on the return journey to Daventry and I filmed them climbing through Old Hill station – sounding very good!

The photos, as usual, are taken from the video so aren’t the best quality but probably won’t look too bad on a mobile phone.

Video and photos 57309 57306 Old Hill, 12/05/17

Two locos rolling downhill, not very interesting, but I had a clear view from the other platform and 57309 was a “new” one for a video shot, seen on 0Z57 Crewe – SVR. I certainly won’t be there when the Belle stock is hauled up before 5am tomorrow morning!!

Video and photo 66302 Old Hill, 07/05/17

The “Tesco Express”, a Sunday regular working, but only in daylight for a few months of the year. Unfortunately at this time of year if the sun is shining and the train is on time, then the light is awful – so I filmed from the other platform to keep out of the sun. 4M36 Wentloog – Daventry.

Video and photo 66055 Old Hill, 07/05/17

Any freight up this way at a sensible time of day is worth seeing – as there are not many. The sun was also at the right angle, very unusual. 6P02 Bromsgrove – Bescot.
