This was the highlight of the day, top and tail 37s on a test train. As always here, it is a gamble as to where to stand. Any extra trains have a habit of passing through at the same time … Continue reading

Videos/photos Stourbridge – part 3, 02/11/16. 68014, XC and LM units

The final part of this set of photos/videos. The freight is still held at Blakedown after the SPAD, another Voyager heads south, no doubt to be stopped at a red signal just down the line! At least another loco arrives, … Continue reading
