And one more...

Holybourne tanks taken from the alternative Bedhampton bridge - maybe the best angle of all when the sun is shining.

Waited almost an hour and a half (god knows why :roll:) for the Chichester stone, which turned up just as I was driving away and unable to phot it. Can't win them all I suppose.

Excellent shot of the Holys - sun right side and cab front too! This will be my only freight soon as I move office on Friday!

Nice shots at St Cross and MHR too!

Thanks Dave. Good couple of days - hadn't seen a single thing since Eastleigh over a month ago! :shock: The line at Bedhampton runs north-east, so a morning working like the tanks is a rare chance to get the sun on the front.

Thanks Thomas. It was really good to explore a few new places and see something different. A steam service on the MHR certainly makes for an idyllic sight in the Hampshire countryside.

Some great pics there, the quad header reminded me of when I saw 5 66's pulling 3 wagons just outside EWS's freight site at wembley. Why they were doing it, I've no idea.

Thanks! I don't imagine I'll see that many locos on a working again any time soon!

triple, quad and even a quintet of light locos can be seen just after weekend engineerings or when they move loco en-masse from one yard to another. There used to be a regular movement that went through Doncaster, can't remember where it started but it was heading for Toton.
For the south it could be a move to or from Hoo Junc, Eastleigh, Westbury, etc but tend to be rare and only appear on the gen if someone manages to see it!

I bagged these in January.

I've seen a few movements with 5 loco's (4 running light), the thing that got me at wembley was the 3 12T tank wagons they were pulling. It just looked so surreal.

Think I can beat you all, 8 at Donny on a tactical movement! I think everyone dropped a brick when they saw it. Don't think I'll ever see one like that again:

Wow! I have never seen anything like that, although there were some 20+ convoys in the US at the start of the recession.

Feck! - That was probably on the l/e movement I was talking about.

Looking back, my Doncaster move was 05/11/06 - 60049, 60070, 60004, 66096 and 66212.

That convoy is quite a sight. I recall seeing something similar on the gen a few weeks back - I'm sure that had around 8 on it.

Few more from yesterday - Oliver Cromwell paid a visit on the Cathedral's Express, and an amendment from Chichester to Portsmouth meant plenty of opportunities for pics.

Heading towards Portsmouth along the South coast. This view had a lot more potential - at one point I had blue skies, bright sun, and horses in the foreground. Would have been a beautiful shot if I say so myself. As it was, luck departed me a bit, but at least I didn't stay in Bedhampton, where the photters were drenched by a sudden downpour!
