As with the previous post about Scotsman, a couple of clips before it arrived at the SVR. Then it is seen on three different days, on two of them it alternated with Scotsman hauling the set of 9 teak coaches, the first time that many teaks have worked together in the days of preservation.
It’s all over now, Flying Scotsman has headed up north and was filmed going through Old Hill this morning with its support coach on the way to the East Lancs. Railway. There was really only one chance of a chimney first shot of the loco most days at the SVR, unless you could hang around for the evening departure from Bridgnorth – which I wasn’t able to do. So I have put all my Scotsman videos in a playlist, you can watch them all or just pick one or two from the list.
It starts with the loco passing Small Heath on the way to Tyseley for an event. Next through Langley Green on the way to Kidderminster and the SVR. I saw it on 4 days at the Valley, one of which was EXTREMELY wet as the loco passed through Bewdley. Couldn’t avoid getting water on the lens, but did an almost identical shot another day. Also worth a mention is the set of 9 teak coaches, which is apparently a first in preservation. Final clip shows it steaming up the Dark Side at Old Hill with support coach.
Sat on train at Dorridge, about 30 minutes late now. Chiltern train also waiting to head to Birmingham, oh, that has just departed.
Four at Kings Norton, totally into the sun, in the convoy from the SVR and the other four at Olton on the 7X09 tube stock. Wonder how long before I get them uploaded to YouTube?
I’ve been using Evernote for various things over the past couple of years. It might be useful to help keep my blog updated as I can copy and paste from Evernote into the blog, including the url links to Youtube videos. All I have to do is make sure I keep updating my Evernote pages. We’ll see how it goes….
No postings since July – that is bad! Blame it on gardening and jury duty. Guess who was foreman of the jury – me, only because nobody else wanted to do it.
I’m trying to catch up with a backlog of videos from recent weeks, so be patient. Then as the weeks go by and less time is spent in the garden, more posts should be made here.
