    Fabulous day in the northern fells with the first WCME. 44932 makes a stirring sight and sound on the final climb to the summit at Blea Moor. Please note taken from a place of safety behind a fence pushing camera through gap.

    Some wonderful lineside images on another cold day from The Settle and Carlisle Line. Hope everyone has managed to warm up after waiting for that train. Always good to see the less overgrown parts of the UK rail system.

    A great video from a great location.

    But do I win the 'Spot the Trespasser' competition? :)

    Must admit our hobby always gets fantastic results from all be it stills or videos with many folk travelling hundreds of miles so long may that continue.

    I tried a bit of both. Had the 2nd camera set on the tripod, remote controlled via the phone, did three dry runs, looked and sounded great. Train getting close, switched on the mic. Heard the exhaust, started the camera. Got on with the stills. Train passed. Kit into the car and home. Dowloaded the images. Looked good. Sounded not so good.

    My mic switch is obscured by a fake fur muffler (100% not needed today in the calm air) and when I thought I'd switched it on I must have missed the switch.

    Back to school.
