68010 was on the ecs test run to Stourbridge today & all my shots of it were filmed there. Those 68s do sound loud, I could hear it rounding the curve as it approached the junction and that must’ve been … Continue reading

Update 1007. Video of 57008 & 57002 on 6M56 at Rowley Regis, 26/01/15

The 57s made a change from the usual 37s that have worked the train in recent months. The line ahead was clear and with a “green” signal no time was wasted as the train passed by. Link to video on … Continue reading

Update 1,002. Videos of 66021 & 66031 at Stourbridge, 22/01/15

I saw 66021 a few days ago at Kings Norton, but 66031 would be a video “cop” so worth a trip to the Junction to see it. Link to videos on calendar page Link to videos on playlist
