Update 421. 60015, 47712 & 57009 at Kings Norton, 22/02/11

Travelling to Kings Norton and back is not my favourite journey, as I have to change trains twice on the outward journey and sometimes 3 times on the return journey. Still, that’s better than walking between stations in Birmingham.

It was worth it when I knew there was a chance to see a 60, 47 & 57 in the early afternoon. 60015 was first with 6E41, the empty tanks to Lindsey. It wasn’t too long to wait before 6Z50 appeared with the 2 DRS locos on the return run from Plymouth to Crewe.

Update 401. 35028 Clan Line at Crewe on a test run, 22/11/10

As mentioned in an e-mail posting yesterday, had a trip to Crewe to see Clan Line, which was due to run 2 test runs to Chester & return. I couldn’t get there to see it depart on the first run, but was ready for it on the return. Fortunately it stayed in the station long enough for me to cross to another platform for some photos on the sunny side. It would be about an hour & a half before it set off from the Heritage Centre on the second run and the light wouldn’t be too good, especially as clouds hid the sun, but I waited and the shots aren’t too bad. You have to suffer the cold & poor light when it’s a loco that’s rarely seen in this area!

At long last, he’s upgraded my Border Terrier Photo Gallery (says KC)

My Dad must be getting old, it has taken him nearly a week to upgrade the Coppermine photo gallery to the latest version.

Oy, KC – stop being cheeky! Dogs just don’t understand how complicated this can be. It has taken me a long time to make some alterations that will hopefully improve the gallery. As yet, I have not added my usual yellow background to much of the page, but it does show around the thumbnails in the filmstrip and around the “intermediate” image. One new feature is an arrow at the top & bottom of the fimstrip, enabling you to move up or down the thumbnails before you select a larger photo to view. Another feature is using the keyboard “arrows” (left arrow moves to previous image, right arrow to next image, down arrow switches file information on or off & finally the up arrow takes you up a level, which is from images to albums. Probably haven’t explained that very well, but give it a try.)

Finally, it should be possible to add comments again. I switched that off years ago, due to all the usual spam, but hopefully most of it will be filtered out, but I’ll see how that goes. Any rubbish that does get through is easy to delete.
