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!!

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

Still trying to clear the backlog of unit videos, this time from a visit to Stafford in December. I’ll have to do another post tomorrow with the photos as I haven’t cropped them yet. Hopefully there will be a few different numbers to those from my November visit. Will know more  tomorrow.

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.

Photos and Video, 139001 and 57312, Stourbridge Junction 14/02/20

Great start, 139001 approaches as 57312 rounds the bend, perfect timing. The train started at Tyseley and after running round at Stourbridge the 57 hauled the saloon to Round Oak, probably surveying the route in connection with improving the local rail services. My final clips are at Cradley Heath, I wanted to film from the other platform – but couldn’t risk it!! 172215 and 172343 also seen.
