Photos and Video, 33029 and 47746, Birmingham International 07/03/20

Don’t often see a Class 33 on a railtour these days so made the effort to see this one. It was The Fenny Crompton, run by the Branch Line Society – 1Z36 Lancaster to Paddington. Running very late earlier in the day it was back on time by the time I saw it. Some other trains also seen – 390136, 158826, 158823 and 350377

Just realised I haven’t edited the videos that go with these photos yet, so busy with other things last week!! A lot of “new numbers” to add to my list, which was started a few months ago. There will be more unit photos to add to another post from this date, as time permits.

Photos and Video, 37403, Rowley Regis 26/02/20

37403 back again the following day, had to try another location and went to Rowley Regis. I was pleased to see it stop briefly at the station, looked like a staff shuffle around between Caroline and the loco, then of course the nice sound of it pulling away.

Photos and Video, 37403 and Caroline, Cradley Heath 25/02/20

Still catching up on recent posts, This was a much better result than the one with the 56 a couple of days earlier as the speed was slower, it came out well.

Photos, just units, Stafford part 1 04/12/19 (old event)

It gets a bit boring and time comsuming with all these unit photos but it’ll be something to look back at in years to come as liveries change and stock is replaced. in this part 20 photos will be added, with more to follow in later posts. All unit photos from this date will show in the same album in the gallery, so there will be plenty of them.

Photos and Video, 56091, Cradley Heath 23/02/20

Worth a walk down the station, but just starting to spit with rain as the train was due, and blowing into the lens. 0Z56 Bristol – Preston and it must be my shortest video!!

Photos and Video, 68004 and 88005, Cradley Heath 20/02/20

The sun was shining and I thought I’d have a wander down the station to see the Berkeley, as it had an 88 on it. As I waited another train arrived with 153334 and 153365 on the rear, so I filmed them as well. Not brilliant as there’s not much room on that platform and the lamp posts don’t help. Tossed a coin, into the sun or from the other platform – always a gamble, but at least the unit was part way down the platform and didn’t block too much of the view.

Had though of going to Old Hill, but the stopper was cancelled – crew shortage or something like that.

Photos, Units at Stafford part 3, 20/11/19 (old event)

Photos and Video, Units at Stafford part 2, 20/11/19 (old event)

More units filmed on the above date, it does get a bit repetitive but does help the time pass a bit quicker as I wait for the next freight. Interesting to try and get a “reasonable” photo from the video though.

Numbers seen in second video:- 220002, 390049, 220015, 221104, 350235, 350122, 390040, 350374, 350255, 390104, 390117, 390112, 220008, 390121, 220009, 350118 and 220025.
