I like to see the older diesels that still operate on the main line, and today I managed to see Class 56/3 no 56312 passing through Rugby. Today it was “on time” unlike when I missed it a couple of weeks ago due to it running over 1 hour early.
A few other freights were seen, so more photos for me to sort – but not tonight.
I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. I was in the grounds of the castle, looking over the wall at the station below, when I heard some ‘planes in the distance. 5 ‘planes were approaching very fast, not realising what they were, it took me several seconds to get the camera ready but I managed a couple of shots.
Thinking I wouldn’t see them again, it was good to see the vapour trails in the distance, then soon after more trails as they appeared to be “looping” in the distance.
A couple more distance shots & then soon after 9 ‘planes flew overhead & the shots came out quite well.
