Thanks.
That is the result of a few hours watching, most freight movements are at night, mostly 390's, 321's and 350's EMU's.

I am going out again in a few minutes to get some more.

I almost missed that, in the photo you can see a train going in the opposite direction. I took a photo of it and as the camera was loading up the double-header went through. Sods Law, lucky to get it.

Some more from tonight (including what I think is a 56 - the one you where complaining about earlier!).
Unfortunatly it was a bit dark :oops: :roll: . It is a bit odd though, on the camera screen (for aiming) the image is alright and is quite light; after taking the photo the picture is pitch black! Never mind.

The 56 - sorry of the bad quality.

Nice one, that's the Hanson 56 on hire to Fastline, hence why it's a different livery!

I think I ought to invest in a better camera - or a cam corder. However the lure of a Hornby T9 (order already placed - am part exchanging) and the Schools class are more desirable than a new camera.

daveK - is there anything you don't know?!? Lucky it was still relativly light when I took that shot.

Yeah - I'm hopeless at science!!
I just keep tabs on what's going on by picking up bits from here and there, no expert or any special knowledge by any stretch of the imagination :D :D
Nice panning action by the way.

I seem to be good at pans. I have a fantastic video of the Flying Scotsman going through at Seamer on its way to Scarborough - I must dig it up and post it on.

The NRM one, in SR livery and watercart. I am part exchanging it at Rails of Sheffield with a Lima Prairie + £40.
I should have some SR Maunsell coaches coming through. My brother ordered me some in January - they still haven't come through so he has cancelled the order and is getting them off Modelfair. They are the cheapest I can find at £18 each.
Eventually I will get myself a Schools class and re-name/number it Haileybury after my school No.920 I think.

Some good pictures there Pete. The one of the freightliner 66 looks spooky in the dark. Like Adam said music to my ears a 56 running on British Metals.

It's the only one to get ain't it? I have the same T9 on order too, hopefully they'll make an arthur with the watercart too soon.

Thanks for all the comments. I still apologise for the bad quality of the 56 video - hopefully this will make up for it.

Taken a few years ago at Seamer.

I have also found some old railway photos from 2-3 years ago. I'll upload them and post them up tonight, also some of todays photos.

I am afraid you've lost me davek...

At 20:20 the Royal Train came through again going to Euston. A little earlier than that (good news for Pedanticmongrel) a pair of 86's came through on its way north. Naturally I left my camera inside when they came through. :roll: :oops:

More photos later today!
