Update 964. Video of 37419 & 37259 at Rowley Regis, 20/10/14

This was another one, edited but not uploaded. Still, I’m slowly working through the videos to make sure I haven’t missed anything. Think I was a bit heavy-handed with the zoom after the train passed, must be the excitement at … Continue reading

Catching up with earlier uploads, this was an exciting day – the Colas 37s on RHTT duties round the Dark Side. It started at Stourbridge with the 2 steel trains and the 37s, then to Rowley Regis for the return … Continue reading

Update 961. Videos of 66110 & 66150 at Stourbridge, 29/10/14

In the morning I check to see which locos are working the 2 trains & if I haven’t filmed them before then I’ll go to Stourbridge to see them. Unless of course the weather is awful, or there is something … Continue reading

Update 960. Videos of 66006 & 66147 at Stourbridge, 28/10/14

Once again the usual steel trains, plus the “leaf buster” DR98909 & DR98959. I’m sure the weather will soon stop these little outings as it won’t be any fun doing this in the rain. Link to videos on the calendar … Continue reading

A nice day but rail conditions were poor & 34053 lost much time on the morning run to Bridgnorth. I was pleased to see the goods train running, makes a change from passenger stock. Link to videos on calendar page … Continue reading

All the loco videos have now been uploaded. I don’t keep a list of all the locos I’ve seen, well, I try from time to time – although it’s never up to date, but I’m sure I saw plenty of … Continue reading

The rest of the videos of loco-hauled trains have now been uploaded, the last of which were in the dark. With the evenings getting darker I needed more practise at filming in low light conditions and the last few were … Continue reading

Update 955 started. Videos at Stafford, 22/10/14

It takes a while to edit & upload the videos, then add comments after working out the train details. Probably do it all within the next few days. The videos start at 13.30 and finish just before 19.00 – so … Continue reading
