Trying a new format for my blog posts….

Everything I do revolves around videos these days. Adding direct links to YouTube videos appears to slow down the loading of pages in a blog, so if I can get my usual size images in my gallery and then insert the medium size image in blog posts – the page should load quickly. That’s the theory.

If you look at the previous post it might give you some idea what I’m doing. The images themselves link to the appropriate videos, if you wish to watch them.

It should also be useful for me, as I can easily look back in my blog for photos instead of searching a gallery. We’ll see how it goes in the coming weeks.

Video – 37612 and 37610 Old Hill, 01/11/16. Also 68012 and “diverts”

Let’s start a “winter project”, to try and catch up with some of those missing blog posts that I can never find the time to post at other times of the year. I’m starting with November and some of the diverted trains when the line was closed at Bromsgrove for engineering work. The still images are taken from the videos and in the dark the quality of a moving train is not good, but acceptable in a video.
