Pontrilas, about 10 mins behind time.
70000 forging past Dorrington Grove this morning...........
.........and accelerating the train past Stokesay Castle after the Craven Arms stop...........
Not a lot of effort or sound from the front on Llanvihangel early this afternoon. Couple of shots of the Brit in the Welsh Countryside. 'Wisp' of smoke..hint of sunshine.
Onibury Crossing today.
The waving from the train in my pictures was to the local primary school who turned out to watch!
Cresting Llanvihangel Summit in the evening sunshine. Plenty of steam to spare for a long blast on the whistle as it wasn't being used in anger through the cylinders. Someone ought to tell them there's something noisy on fire on the back of the train...
It seems solid fuel was being conserved at the expense of liquid through Craven Arms, it being the first charter I've seen in this location that's approached silently with zero exhaust and came past us with just the blower gently cracked. It was only once it was a bit further onto the bank after having passed us by that suddenly there was any sound from the front.
This evening approaching Leominster at speed.
The evening sun was a pleasant surprise, but the sting-in-the-tail crosswind was most unhelpful..............
Heading north at Bushmoor...........
In evening sunshine in the Shropshire countryside just north of Yorton station.
Pontrilas this morning, Abergavenny Station later on.
A few shots from yesterday with 70000. Seen here at Llanvihangel Bank, Woofferton & Onibury
