    In the times above there is no stop at Nottingham on the outward leg. Is this correct or just missing?

    The schedule shows PASS 08+17 for Nottingham. This may be an error.

    Hoping to photograph this train, however I do not know this line at all.

    Can anyone reccomend a spot between Stevenage and London which maybe a good place to photograph this train?

    A station maybe? An overbridge? Are any station no-go areas due to 'over enthusiastic' security guards?

    Cheers in advance

    North Welwyn is popular spot. Especially the viaduct there.

    Harringay Station is popular. On a curve and usually fast running.

    A bit late posting the info but 20 late into Connington Loop for water but away on time. Saw her near Biggleswade going quite well on the up slow. Was booked main line I believe but a late running electric hauled special - Class 86/7s - was up her tail so turned slow road so the cans could over take. "Young" Bill looking well happy on the footplate.

    AFAIK the North London Line is closed on Sundays for Engineering works. So I presume it could have proceeded to Stratford Via this route, I may of course be wrong. This is annoying as If I had known it was using the North London Line I could have walked from my place of work and watched it go by!!

    When it comes to looking 'odd', headlamps are the least of 6233's problems!
