According to Trackside.
Two day trip, date not confirmed. Clun plus diesel to Bristol, then unassisted to Plymouth. Day 2 Plymouth to Bristol non stop unassisted, and Bristol to Paddington ditto. Diesel pilot back to Birmingham.
Should there not be a red lamp on the loco?
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.
Crossing Digswell Viaduct this morning, looking and sounding terrific.
Express Train to Lincoln, 7029 Clun Castle, 7th October 2023.
Filmed at Spalding and Swinderby:
7029 at an extended water stop at Peterborough on the return leg
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.
7th October 2023 not September
A very enjoyable trip to Lincoln today. Thanks to all Vintage Trains staff and volunteers.
Storming through Welwyn North this morning in front of the usual large crowd, then later drifting through the same location somewhat delayed on the return.
Time flies, particularly when you get older
7029 approaching Arlesey this morning, in the company of @Spamcan81.
Was he still sober?
7029 captured at Finsbury park, Langford, Stowgate, Grantham and St Neots:
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.
Wise decisions Liam having seen the crap weather in the West of Cumbria!
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,
