Several freights were diverted round the Dark Side & it seemed a good excuse to go down the Junction for some filming in the dark. Worth going, as I hadn’t filmed 60019 or 66596 before. The full list is as … Continue reading

Update 999. Video of 0X66 GBRf convoy at Rowley Regis, 09/12/14

There was much crossing of fingers that the convoy would head to Doncaster via the Dark Side, especially as there had been a set of times for the Lickey on the previous day. Always a case of checking to see … Continue reading

68013 was booked to run light engine to Stourbridge, supposedly with a stop in Rowley loop. I headed to Smethwick to film it first, hoping then to get in front of it for a second shot, but following it in … Continue reading

The weather wasn’t quite what I expected. I headed to Foley Park tunnel area to film the trains on the climb, but it was very windy & started raining, so I headed to Arley & the arboretum for a hot … Continue reading

Update 993. Videos of 66117 & 60044 at Stourbridge, 05/12/14

Apart from the 2 freights hauled by the above locos, I filmed a few units & the “squirts” to test out setting manual focus. It does seem to work well and the camcorder films both distant and close up shots … Continue reading
