What a great day for mainline steam. No problems and NO DIESELS TAGGED ON THE BACK!
My footage, shot at Putney (Oxford Road Bridge), Streatham Common, and a few close ups at Victoria.
Also from Oxford Road Bridge, Putney.
My efforts at London Victoria (x2), Clapham Jc, West Byfleet & Thornton Heath
the shortest thread ever on a ML steam excursion - why?
as usual it ran all OK, on time as booked, no box on the back, and with an amazing steam loco and crew on the front - simples,
shame she could not have been taken down from SL to Bristol for the Torbay EXP to Devon on Sunday. would have been a treat yesterday
yet again another summer in the South sees only Tornado and 34046/52 that can deliver big loco reliability which is essential on the big railway - so cruel that Tornado was denied lost trips the other week due to a 'computer error'
laughable, but it was not actually funny at all and cost/lost revenue all round
also weird SD ran a tour with Braunton needing 2 diesels taken with her to mess about with it - why not keep a trip simple - and punters happy? Braunton is a fabulous engine that can perform so why mess?
Was that Michael Portillo walking into shot at 8:54??
I really don't think he'd block the view of someones camera whilst its leaving (!)
Nice video(s) Mr K.
Two cameras now eh?
Was that filmed at 'Stroppy Farmer Crossing' or elsewhere?
