Following on from part 1, the remaining videos at Kidderminster before heading to Arley. Locos seen are 90733, 34053, 4566, L92 (5786) & 4270. On the mainline 66176 & 66137 pass by on freights & “Phoebe” is on the Coalyard Miniature Railway.
I’m way behind with everything these days, and with the warmer weather approaching there are jobs to do in the garden as well. So far I have only uploaded videos from two days of the gala & not even started on the third day!
A new idea is to link to playlists from these blog posts & to list the locos seen. The playlist are about 10 minutes long & you can easily select which parts you wish to view. Part 1 includes 34053, 2857, 1054, 90733 & 4270 filmed at the start of the gala at Kidderminster.
Yes, another app. I’ve copied the gala timetable from the svr.co.uk site and put it in a simple android app.
It also includes the loco allocations as at 15/03/15. Don’t blame me if there are any changes since then!!
EDIT – it worked well, only downloaded 23 times but seems it was appreciated according to comments people sent me.
I’ve finished uploading all the videos with locos, the ones just of Voyagers & Pendolinos normally get forgotten – maybe they will be uploaded one day? There are 2 playlists:-
First playlist:- 92019, 66429, 66138, DR73906, 90046, 66721, 92018, 66952, 66532, 86613, 86628, 86614 & 86622.
Second playlist:- 92033, 66747, 68009, 90043, 66534 66024 325004, 90041, 66709, 57308, 66507, 66701, 350235 & 66027.
So far I’m only half way through uploading them to youtube, once complete I will probably split them into a couple of playlists & include a list of the locos seen. If you look at my videos on youtube, you might’ve already seen some of them.
The usual morning freights, but the first Class 60 this week – so I decided to go, even though it was raining. The 67s were on a test train from Derby to Cheltenham.
Since yesterday, it seems 234 spam comments have been stopped. That saves me a lot of work!
If it continues like this I will leave the comment option enabled, not that I get many comments that need answering
This is part of WP-SpamShield. I doubt if anybody wishes to contact me, but the option is now there – as long I don’t keep getting spammed!!!
(The link to “contact form” is on the right of the screen)
Long time ago I switched off the “comments” option – because spam kept pouring in. Just decided to try WP-SpamShield plugin to see if that eliminates most of it. I’ll give it a try for a few weeks to see what happens. I did briefly try yesterday without the plugin activated and about 40 spam comments were added, since activating the plugin earlier today there has been no spam comments added.
It was dark, but the sound was very good. The train was 1Z76, the return run of Vintage Trains “The Red Dragon” from Cardiff to Tyseley. It’s 2½ minutes before the train appears in the video, but the sound is worth listening to.
A Colas 70 up the Dark Side, a very unusual working with a train of point carriers. It was booked to stop in Rowley loop, which gave me a chance to catch a train to Langley for a second shot of it.
A pair of 47s to Stratford-upon-Avon, very unusual. It was a WCRC private charter from Carnforth & during the day 47746 was named “Chris Fudge”. I didn’t know the person, but a search on the internet gave some answers:-
