    Thanks for any help.

    NOT a Happy Bunny !!

    Got up early (3 hours before normal time) and took a train to Stockport to photograph it crossing the viaduct; the Pullman was due to stop at Heaton Norris to let my train cross the viaduct and call at Stockport - in time to photograph the Pullman in poor weather before returning to Southport. Sadly someone authorised the Pullman to precede the local train hence waste of time :Banghead::Banghead::Banghead: ! Now warming up at home cursing whoever authorised the early move !

    Some you win, some you lose Fred. At least you had a trip out on the train!

    Here it is running about seven minutes late at Norton Bridge, soon after leaving Crewe...

    I almost filmed from Heamies, and wish I had, as the vegetation in my chosen spot was a little more unruly than it was last time I filmed there.

    That train is probably the most distinctive colour you see on the network and as it will always be kept clean it'll be quite a head turner, I suspect. (Please - no livery debate as a result of that comment :))
