Video – Tug, Shed and Dogbox up the Dark Side, 24/05/18

Three clips, in reverse order – the first clip is of 60096 on 6M51 Baglan Bay – Chirk log train, running rather late – much to the annoyance of Mrs. S who was at home anxious to get her beauty … Continue reading

Videos – Day 2 of the Severn Valley Railway 2018 Diesel Gala 18/05/18

On the first day of the Gala at Kidderminster I was standing for about 7 hours as I filmed the trains, so on this day I wanted something more relaxing. With a couple of folding chairs, Andrew and I had … Continue reading

Videos – Day 1 of the Severn Valley Railway 2018 Diesel Gala 17/05/18

I don’t like starting the day at silly o’clock but timed my arrival at Kidderminster to film the shunters departing on the 09.25 local and stayed to see D832 depart on the 16.11. Most of the filming was from the … Continue reading

Video – 153365 Old Hill, 21/05/18

After a mad rush to the station to see the 88 which ran early the previous day, I had to take it easy to see 66726 and 47712 returning to Crewe – so ambled out of the house before their … Continue reading

Video 88010 Old Hill, 20/05/18

I know I posted a couple of photos a couple of days ago, but here is a link to the video. I don’t know if 88s will ever work a Berkeley flask run so this might be a rare clip … Continue reading

Video – 66726 and 47712, then 56078 at Stourbridge, 16/05/18

More locos for the SVR gala! First 0Z12 from Crewe, then 0Z56 from Nottingham. The re-liveried WM unit 172339 also seen, oh, and the clock in the car park doesn’t seem to be working. The time is wrong on it … Continue reading

Another visit to Kidderminster to see the return of the convoy and D832 on its first day in service since arriving for the gala. The Deltic start up as the warship arrives – so be ready for that. 68018 and … Continue reading

Video – 66017, 43192 and 43063, also 08444. Bodmin Parkway 26/04/18

I think this is the final video from Cornwall. For KC’s fans, a few seconds of her at the very end, no buggy for her this time as it was only a short walk around the station. The 08 is … Continue reading

Lots of “red” on the calendar, means lots to do!

In the same way I struggle with my photo galleries, I’m always behind the times with this blog. Once again I’ll have a go at spending more time on it. I’ve just been looking at my videos for this month … Continue reading

Video – 60096 and 70816 near Blakedown, 07/05/18

I “had the wheels”, just for a change, and so was able to get away from the usual locations for the Colas locos. The units seen after it were some test shots to try and get the “feel” of filming … Continue reading

Video 66425, then 37612 at Old Hill, 08/05/18 (in the dark)

37612 was working a test train from Bristol to Derby, due around the same time as the Tesco train – so worth a little outing! The Worcester to Tyseley empty stock, including 172339, ran through first – but I’ve put … Continue reading
