Update 869. 37612 & 37605 on 6M56 at Cradley Heath, 18/11/13

This working “should” pass through Cradley when no other trains are due, but a late running train from Birmingham can cause problems. Once again, the DMU was late, but by about 6 minutes – which meant 6M56 should be through with a couple of minutes to spare, and today it worked out well. As I mention in the video description, I tried manual focussing to avoid any blurring when the camera loses focus as the train passes. Unfortunately it wasn’t quite set for the right distance – you learn by your mistakes, hopefully? The sound was great as the train accelerated past me.
