Photos, 60019 plus some units, Smethwick GB 09/01/20

I keep taking photos of units but never check the numbers so don’t know if they are “cops” or not. Probably seen all the local ones even if I haven’t actually filmed them. The photos are in the order seen, as I was filling in time until the 60 appeared.

Numbers are 350232, 170506, 170510, 350114, 350410, 170503 and 60019

Video, 66181, 139001 and 66160, Stourbridge Junction 10/01/20

Just a video again for this post. The two morning freights are seen down the Junction, the northbound one was running 38 late down Worcester way and through Droitwich but was given a clear run through Kidderminster and was only 20 late at Stourbridge, and no unit blocking the view!! Will sort some photos another day.

66181 6V05 Round Oak – Margam
66160 6M81 Margam – Round Oak

I’ll try adding the YouTube clip below.

Video, 60019, Smethwick Galton Bridge 09/01/20 (and some units)

Another little outing, just to get the 60 on 6E08 Wolves – Immingham, but I did film a few units as I waited. Numbers were 350232, 170506, 170510, 350114, 350410 and 170503. Wonder if that was the first of the new 350 units I’ve seen?

As usual these days, I don’t seem to have time to work on the photos, but the video link is below.

Video, 153361 and 170270 plus other units, Snow Hill & Dorridge 08/01/20

An ecs working from Cardiff to Tyseley was tempting, no idea what would be on it, at least it wasn’t local units. The remaining clips are the units filmed at Dorridge on the day I saw the 47 and HST power cars.

Numbers of units seen 153361, 170270, 165011, 172343, 172219, 172217, 168109, 168112. Mustn’t forget tram 17. No time to crop photos for the gallery just yet – another job to add to the list!!

Photos and Videos, 5 diesels, Kidderminster 23/12/19

Another post for the above date, this time showing each of the diesels seen running. I had seen there was an ecs working to Bridgnorth so made sure I was there to see that, always good to see a class 37.
