    I've only got a short time so it will be at the same place at the night shot, nothing special just a long straight approach.

    Left Crewe at 15.10 I have been told, so just over an hour late, and the 5 has also arrived at Crewe running early.

    By my reckoning Britannia should be waiting at Craven Arms if it was an hour down. Any news on progress?

    Regards,

    Reported leaving Shrewsbury at 17:50, but it may not need to make all the scheduled stops en route to to Hereford, so there is probably scope for making up time.

    Thanks for the kind comments - I don't think the video did justice to the superb sound and sight of Britannia on that climb.

    Tangmere on her way south today - through Acton Bridge at 8:42.

    Well done Carnforth.

    Interesting that she still seems to be without namplates. Good to see her back though.
