Just updated my galleries to Coppermine 1.5.28

The above version was released a month or so ago. I always seem to wait a few weeks before I install the new version – just in case any errors are found. I’m getting better at updating but with 5 … Continue reading

Update 924. Video of 37682 & 37688 at Old Hill, 19/05/14

A pair of 37s but a bit of an anticlimax, as power was shut off before the signal & they just drifted past – even though it is uphill. Link to video It’s always good to see the older locos … Continue reading

Update 923. Video of 67012 at Old Hill, 19/05/14

I went to the station to see a freight train, but it went via the Lickey instead. At least I saw this late running train from London to Kidderminster, better than nothing at all. Link to video The time was … Continue reading

Update 921. Videos of 7812, 34053, 43106, D1062 & 55019 at Arley, 17/05/14

Rain stopped play the previous weekend & we didn’t make it to Arley, but this day was warm & sunny. The main loco of interest was Deltic 55019 on a driver training run, and the first time I had seen … Continue reading

Update 918. Videos of 1501, 2857, 4566, 34053 & D8188 at Arley, 05/05/14

I do wish I could do all these postings in order, or at least in the order I add the images to the gallery – but it will never happen. It was a Bank Holiday Monday, the weather was fine … Continue reading

Update 917. Video of 67017 at Old Hill, 10/05/14

This is the one working with a Class 67 that I can easily see going up through Old Hill. The downhill runs are less interesting. 1H38 runs from Kidderminster to London Marylebone. Link to video

Update 916. Video of 47813 & 47828 at Old Hill, 09/05/14

Almost 11pm and very dark, and it was moving pretty fast – not surprising with such a light load. The return run to Stafford of a railtour which had steam from Westbury to Plymouth & back to Bristol. Link to … Continue reading

Update 915. Video of 66305 on the “Tesco Express” at Old Hill, 13/05/14

Another dark shot of this train slogging up the bank at Old Hill. Think I’ve got the manual focus setting right for this sort of shot now. Nothing is too blurred & I can read the loco number as it … Continue reading

Update 914. Video of 56301 collecting 37906 from the SVR, 11/05/14

The Class 37 had been sold some months ago and an attempt had been made to move it, but there had been a problem. This day didn’t start too well as the Class 56 did not leave Washwood Heath at … Continue reading
