    What a piece of luck! I stop off back at Swindon to see 60163 pass, before catching the next HST to Didcot. It was quite fortunate then, that 60163 was almost 25 minutes late and 6201 was on time, and just after Lizzie rolled in, the centre road signal went to green, and 60163 raced through, whistling all the way to 6201.

    This was spectacular...

    The link is here, and I will post the links to the other videos from the day as soon as I possibly can: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weH1je6sDfk

    Here are the two videos from yesterdays chase. I had a great day out with a number of friends, and hope these videos are a good indication of what happened throughout the day. Normally, I would combine the two videos into one full video, but my computer's hard drive hasn't got enough memory to support a 17 minute video!

    The link to the 6201 video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXEsiDHHRn4&list=UL
    The link to the 60163 video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5GBv-ljNK0

    Enjoy, and as ever, comments are appreciated.
