    Thanks for the message, malc. You are right; I rushed down to Offord Crossing and was just in time! Didn't even have time to set the camera properly, but managed to get a couple of acceptable shots.

    They are now on fotopic if anyone is interested to see them :

    This, as usual, is the 'Stop Press! collection for new pictures. I shall leave them there for a couple of weeks or so before moving them on to the 'Main Line Steam' collection. They will then be here :

    Hope that they are of interest.

    Further to my message above, a friend of mine went to Conington between Huntingdon and Peterborough to see Tornado and, like me, he was almost caught out by the early running! Fortunately for him, however, the Pacific was held by a red signal where the three track section is reduced to two tracks while a First Capital Connect EMU went by on the fast line.

    He was therefore able to take several pictures and he sent some to me. These are also now on my Fotopic site; same link as above, http://ronfisher.fotopic.net/c1099919.html
