The photos, as usual, are taken from the video so aren’t the best quality but probably won’t look too bad on a mobile phone.

Video and photos 57309 57306 Old Hill, 12/05/17

Two locos rolling downhill, not very interesting, but I had a clear view from the other platform and 57309 was a “new” one for a video shot, seen on 0Z57 Crewe – SVR. I certainly won’t be there when the Belle stock is hauled up before 5am tomorrow morning!!

The “Tesco Express”, a Sunday regular working, but only in daylight for a few months of the year. Unfortunately at this time of year if the sun is shining and the train is on time, then the light is awful – so I filmed from the other platform to keep out of the sun. 4M36 Wentloog – Daventry.

I’m trying to keep up with my videos that I upload!! the Northern Belle ecs from Kidderminster – Crewe, running as 5Z40, is seen passing Old Hill. Fortunately 172336 on 2K17 Whitlocks End – Kidderminster passed through in plenty of time to save me from being bowled.

I’ll add the photos after they’ve been uploaded to my gallery

Video and photos, 66741 33108 47192, Old Hill 02/05/17

It’s time to try and get back into the routine of updating this blog and adding a few frames cropped from the videos.

This is the most recent video I’ve filmed showing the 0Z47 convoy from Crewe to the SVR passing through Old Hill. I had planned to film from the opposite platform and the convoy should have cleared before a stopping train was due, but for some reason it took about 15 minutes between Rowley Regis and Old Hill. I raced over the bridge, the stopper departed, another train followed that and still no convoy. It did eventually appear but I didn’t get such a good shot being on the adjacent platform.

The “photos” from the video aren’t brilliant though!
