Photos and Video, 68017, Rowley Regis. 27/09/19

The Pathfinder tour 1Z57 from Paignton to Carlisle was due up Old Hill about the same time as a downhill stopping train and so I decided to go to Rowley, forgetting an ecs train was due. The unit appeared in the distance before the 68 came round the bend but fortunately it all worked out well as the unit was running slowly.

Over 6 months and no posts!!!!!

Some people who know me are aware of the reason why – a house move.

38 years in a 4-bedroom house with steep drive, big garden and a tall hedge was getting too much – so we decided to downsize. Trouble is, what to do with all the stuff you accumulate over such a long time!! A couple of large skips were filled with “rubbish”? Some items sold on ebay, others given away or taken to charity shops, and the rest put into store.

Now moved in to bungalow, flat garden, no stairs or hedge to trim, should make life a bit easier. Maybe I can find more time for trains and filming in the coming weeks and start posting in the blog and uploading photos again.
