Adding videos is a long process.

I used to be able to edit photos & upload them pretty quickly, but the videos take much longer, which is why I am sometimes very late adding the updates to this blog. Editing videos is an easy task, but … Continue reading

Update 945. 66167 at Stourbridge, 22/08/14

I should’ve seen two freights, but my DMU was cancelled & I had to wait 30 minutes for the next one, by which time the northbound freight had passed through Stourbridge. Good job the southbound was on a later schedule, … Continue reading

Update 944. 4566, 2857, 43106 & D1062 at Arley, 23/08/14

I’m a week late adding this, but I think it was a showery day & we didn’t wait to see the fifth train – wanting to avoid the rain & hurrying back to the car. You’ll see KC appears in … Continue reading

Update 943. 66113 & 66037 at Stourbridge, 29/08/14

It was mild & dry, so I thought I’d have another trip to Stourbridge to see the two freights. There wasn’t a “sunny side” & the southbound passenger trains were running late, so I decided to try the other platform … Continue reading

Update 942. 37603 & 37601 at Old Hill, 29/08/14

The return run was after midnight, so I had to make do with the downhill run, unfortunately. It was a Crewe to Kingswear railtour, run by Pathfinder, and is seen rolling very gently down through Old Hill. Link to video … Continue reading

Update 941. Just a view of entrance to Round Oak, 27/08/14

I know it’s an odd video, but I was trying to find out why the train was cancelled. A simple view from the road bridge, showing the modified trackwork and entrance to the steel terminal, with 60020 in the background. … Continue reading

Update 940. 5043 Earl of Mount Edgcumbe at Snow Hill, 24/08/14

Not many more Shakespeare Express runs this year, so better make the most of it. Last time I saw it the loco was 4965 & I was expecting the same today, but when I walked to the end of the … Continue reading

Update 939. 43106, 2857, 4566, 50026 & 7812 at Arley, 24/08/14

A vist to Arley on a Sunday with 5 trains running. Had to make the most of the day as Bank Holiday Monday was forecast to be a very wet day. Link to videos on calendar page

Update 938. 60059 on the Shakespearean Tug at Tyseley, 25/08/14

Too wet to go to Arley, but the opportunity to see a 60 on a railtour was worth an hour or two out. Tyseley was a suitable station to go to, as there is plenty of cover from the rain … Continue reading

Turned off “comments” option

There has been so much spam coming through recently that I decided to block all comments. Dozens were coming through every hour, and as I rarely get any real comments the best solution seemed to stop them altogether. If I … Continue reading

Update 937. 37667 & 37218 Old Hill, 11/08/14

It hasn’t run this way for the last few weeks but today 6M56 came back round the Dark Side & with some noise! It was running early and a downhill stopping train was due – so I played safe, but … Continue reading

Update 936. 2857, 1501, D1062 & 43106 at Arley, 09/08/14

An hour or so at Arley was enough to see 4 trains, but had to leave before the 5th loco came through. Until I can get round to adding the photo links via the galleries, you can find the links … Continue reading
