    Marshbrook is on a length of straight track with no points in sight of it....
    ...however Morton On Lugg - as stated in the post - unsurprisingly looks exactly like the shot in the video with points crossing over to the siding/branch into the adjacent quarry.

    A lot of spadework and the eye for a shot and of course the skill of taking the shot at the right time.In my opinion that puts the two of them in a different league.

    Absolutely. And the generosity in sharing it with all can be the motivation for others. :)

    Did they ever break away from their policy of only accepting bookings of 2+? I never thought that the Staycation ever really got of the ground with limited traction in the 2nd year of operation and basically offering what Norther Rail offer on a daily basis...

    Very late to the party, in rapidly fading light Britannia is seen at Norton Bridge having just turned right at Searchlight Lane Jnc heading over the new line towards Yarnfield Jnc and onwards towards Stoke rather than taking the more normal direct route to Crewe on the return Kidderminster SVR charter.
