Update 989. Old photos from 2002, added 30/11/14

I quickly glanced at some of my first digital photos recently & thought how much had changed since then. Obviously the quality has improved, but so many other things have changed – liveries, stock, locos etc. It’ll make a change … Continue reading

Update 988. Videos of 66039 & 66127 at Stourbridge, 28/11/14

Looking through my list of numbers I hadn’t filmed 66039 before, so yet another trip down the Junction. DR98908 & DR98958 also put in an appearance, again! Link to videos on calendar page

Update 987. Videos of 66127 & 66104 at Stourbridge, 26/11/14

The weather was extremely dull & miserable but on checking my uploaded videos I had not filmed either of the 66s due through this morning. So it was worth a couple of hours out to see them. MPVs DR98958 & … Continue reading

Update 986. Videos of 66020, 66058, 66434, 66125 & 67018 at Old Hill, 23/11/14

Some diversions round the Dark Side again. Needless to say it’s in the dark – we don’t get much freight up here in daylight. A couple of the trains required a banker and 66058 was the loco performing that duty. … Continue reading

Update 985. Videos of a cute little robin, 23/11/14

We kept some of our sandwich crumbs to try to get a robin to take them from a hand. There are 2 video clips, each of a couple of minutes or so. Take a look and see what happened! Link … Continue reading

Update 984. Videos of 7812, 2857, 4566 & DMU at Arley, 23/11/14

We didn’t have our usual walk to the station on Saturday, but travelled on the train instead, because poor weather was forecast. It also meant I didn’t take a camera with me, but on Sunday everything was back to normal … Continue reading

Update 983. Video of 37059 & 37605 at Rowley Regis, 24/11/14

At least the local trains were stopping at Old Hill today & I was able to get to Rowley Regis. It was a bit of a rush job as 6M56 was running an hour early and hadn’t been showing on … Continue reading

Update 982. Videos of freight trains at Stafford, 18/11/14

Just over 4 hours at Stafford from about 3.15pm – so mostly in darkness, but at least it was busy. I filmed a few units on their  own but haven’t included them in this list. I’d prefer filming in sunlight … Continue reading

Update 981. Video of 37605 at Old Hill, 20/11/14

Seen earlier in the day at Stourbridge, 37605 on the return run from Swindon to Crewe. 172338 was also seen as I waited. Had the 15.42 been running, I would probably have been bowled, but like lots of other Old … Continue reading

Update 980. Videos of 66188 & 66059 at Stourbridge, 21/11/14

Another day of chaos with many of the local stopping trains round the Dark Side being cancelled. Once again I had to catch a bus to Cradley Heath as trains weren’t always stopping at Old Hill. To add to the … Continue reading

Update 979. Videos of 66149, 66204 & 37605 at Stourbridge, 20/11/14

All week it has been Dark Side chaos with trains from Old Hill cancelled. Although Live Departure Boards showed the 09.37 as running on time, when I reached the station it was showing as cancelled. The guy in the ticket … Continue reading

Update 978. Videos of 60024, 66058, 66193 & 67017 at Old Hill, 16/11/14

A 60 up Old Hill, certainly worth a walk up the station. Yes, a couple more diverted freights round the Dark Side, going up the bank as well – so a banker was required. As I waited for the second … Continue reading
