    Nice one Stephen, I'll bet you were concerned at first that she was just going to drift past but obviously waiting for the signal, then that increasing tempo as she set about picking up speed...

    Thanks Ralph , I was a tad worried but the same thing happened on the Fellsman on the 10th of June so I picked this location hoping the same would happen . Not sure why the severe slack but there are a lot of land works going on in that area .

    A very enjoyable clip there Steve, such a fabulous sound as the train was accelerated up the line with that wonderful 3-cylinder beat, well captured and many thanks for sharing.

    cheers

    Cracking shots Shep , really like the Aisgill shot as you positioned yourself just right as not to get the big grey NR box in your shot on the left .

    The aesthetics of a Jubilee on that length of train look just right to me, somehow better proportioned than with a longer train. Great coverage too by all posters.

    There is a glitch in RTT as the return times along with the Hellifield-Carnforth move are not showing up. The normal return times are in the system !
