    Reading Wessex Rail Gen. A4 Bittern 60019 made a trip from Southall to Alton today (5Z44). But for some reason this move didn't get reported on Uk Steam info.

    That's interesting Lee, can we assume that she's in for some TLC?

    Might just have to swing by Ropley at some point on Saturday!

    Don't suppose you know how long she's staying?

    Strange. IF it is Top Gear what's so wrong with that. Just curious, as light entertainment goes these days I enjoyed the Tornado programme

    They might be filming the Christmas Special of Wartime Farm or something for a new series from Dan Snow about railways. These were possible filming jobs mentioned at the last AGM. Or it could be something else.........

    She returns to Southall Monday Morning, 11.49 through Aldershot.

    I would guess the filming work was done on Friday as the railway was not operating any services.

    I'm just intrigued as to what exactly they where using her for filming for, as she doesn't exactly match any of the coaching stock, and wartime farm xmas special seems rather odd, history programme with Dan Snow, again odd!

    Any way we digress - does anybody know what time she's off Alton tomorrow and which route?

    Going by Youtube someone has filmed the filming of 4464 on the MHR and says its for a 1 minute Sky TV Xmas Trailer and the filming was done at night. It seemed to consist of a sort of covered but open sided wagon with lights inside, a flatwagon and a brake van doing some fast runs past a row of lights.

    The person who filmed it said in another video of the filming that its based on a child having a dream and the lit wagon behind will show images of the programmes they have coming up.
