Enjoyed the pics at Peak Dale, if it was closer I'd pop over there.

In this August's Model Rail magazine, there is an article on Peak Forest, which is the same place. KWVR stuff uploading!

A few holiday snaps from the KWVR. I would have uploaded them earlier, but I was straight off to Devon as soon as I was home from Derby.

70013 Oliver Cromwell is due to come past tomorrow (Monday). Hopefully I can get a good video of it, not so wobbly and into the runner beans this time!

Oliver Cromwell came past 10 minutes ahead of schedule. She was rather dull to be honest, but a steam locomotive is a steam locomotive.
Video to come soon, and it is better than my previous one!

A tip off from forum member Pedanticmongrel resulted in me catching the Northern Belle Pullman hauled by 67003; heading towards Euston.

I have 6201 'Princess Elizabeth' passing by on Saturday 6th March. It'll be going through Watford at 12:30 heading to Euston. I'll miss it heading to London, as I am at college (damned Saturday school!); but I should catch it on its return at 17:30.

Hopefully I can record something for you.

I saw her come through, and would have had the perfect video clip if my camera hadn't of run out of power the moment I started filming.

She was amazing, she opened up in the station, so she was chuffing away as she passed me, beautiful loco. I got a wave from the driver and a memory, that is something I suppose.

I must remember to fully charge my batteries for when Bittern comes through in a fortnight.

Saw my first Class 70 pass by the back of my house today; honestly felt like gouging my eyes out! Fortunately I was relieved by the pleasant sight of the two Freightliner Class 86s double heading. Unfortunately no videos or photos - but I hope it remains an interesting sighting update.

Evening all. I've made a little video of various things passing, including a pair of Class 86s, a Class 67 and the new, disgusting Class 70. Others also feature.
