The trip continues to Worchester, so those who have decided to alight at Kidderminster are transferred to a private SVR train for a trip up the line and back.

WCML can be noisy... thank goodness for double glazing! I suppose living here for about 5 years now you do get used to it. Can be inconvenient at times, such as when a train passes you when you are in mid-sentance, or as you just drift off to sleep just to be woken up by a loud freight passing. I get by though!

Steam next weekend! And for once I won't be onboard. It is 60163 again doing the Euston-Chester run. I am thinking of heading to Gypsy Lane (see P.12) bridge to see her Northbound and in the station on the way back. Although in saying that I reckon it will probably be at Watford Junction for both passes...

Video making has been a nightmare thus far, with my Desktop failing on every single occassion to produce the films for the past month. With any luck Part 1 of the Weymouth trip will be done, so I can then try to produce Part 2. I have yet to edit the 60163 trip to the SVR.

Well, 34067 'Tangmere' has just come by at 18:06. Light engine movement. She was supposed to come through at 16:21 - I found out she was coming passed at 16:27. Heard her go by just now, thought I had missed her. 60163 on Wednesday though, I shall definetly go to see that.

Video of my trip from Euston to the SVR is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KUvnV5UpuI Includes passing through Watford.

Two more forthcoming trips... First is on the 24th October on 'The Sussex Belle'; from Victoria to Ashford, Rye, Hastings and back. Tis a roundy-roundy trip. Only £39 per person as well... 34067 taking us on that.

Second trip is on Armistice Day from Watford Junction to Ashford and the K&ESR. I could have gone on to Canterbury; but the lure of more steam engines proves much too tempting!

Wednesday 26th October is the date for my trip on 'The Sussex Belle' behind 34067 'Tangmere'. Should be a most enjoyable trip mehopes. I'll naturally create a thread of my photos/videos on the afterwards.

Britannia was very impressive passing through today, especially in the evening. I will post a video sometime tomorrow of her in Watford.

A few stills from the above video. Not the best quality I am afraid. I need to find a way of taking stills and record a video at the same time really...

I can't believe this is the first post I've made in this thread this year! It has been far too long! Well, as a comeback we have a very apt loco for Watford Junction. 46233 'Duchess of Sutherland', which would have been very local on this line. She is hauling the Princess Royal Class Locomotive Trust's trip 'The London Explorer' on Saturday 20th October 2012. Sheffield - Euston return.

And a few stills from the above video, shame they don't come out too well from the video!

Back in your Dec 2011 photos I was amazed at the number of speed restriction signs there.
My, we motorists complain about badly sited & partially hidden restriction signs, but how do
you know which to abide by there !!! ??? Probably all the temporary 20 limits to play safe.
