    Had an odd day yesterday at the Bluebell in the snow. The roads around Horsted Keynes were as the railway said dangerous to say the least. I got the clip below which is just about my favourite ever from Horsted House bridge...

    Anyone else get any photos or videos?

    Cheers Dan! Nor had I ever seen it like that before, and not sure I will again.

    The roads were very difficult and with the timetable in tatters with the frozen signal I stood for over two hours either side of getting that shot getting absolutely frozen so much so that i eventually gave up and headed home.

    But then all I needed was the one shot eh?!!
