    I'm trying not to think about that... I suppose if all else fails I could tape the phone to the outside of the window and use earphones. I was just mulling over the design of a bracket that you could bolt to the window which would hold a smartphone with the lens just outside the frame and a protective frame against tree strike. Hinge back if anything solid too...

    Nunney doing most of the work, Braunton slipping a lot in Cornwall and slipped on the exit from Plymouth with Ray Churchill doing a grand job on Nunney to get the train moving.

    As no competent on train video
    seems to have been seen here yet here's a mobile out of the window clip featuring
    - Large out of focus thumb
    - Wrong side of train for light
    - wobbly camera
    - extraneous noise
    And just about every other fault you or I can imagine. But my excuses include that I don't do video and haven't used the android clip editor before. Laugh privately please!

    Plymouth departure I believe.
