    Here's my footage of 7029 Clun Castle at full speed along The East Coast Main Line today. I filmed her at Offord Cluny Foot Crossing between St Neots and Huntingdon. I hope you enjoy the video.

    I am amazed there is still a gated crossing worked by a signalman in October 2023!

    Pretty rare in North London where I live but fairly common in rural areas.

    Just the two the locations for this rare run over the ECML. Digswell was the highlight of the day and then a shot on the return near Claypole Loop was sufficient for us. Would of liked to of chased it back to KGX but there was far too many restrictions closer to London.

    I saw 7029 twice yesterday - thanks to an understanding boss at work :).


    A poor-quality phone video of the return working at dusk is here -

    Very Best Wishes,
    Bob.
