Great pictures, better than the ones i took :roll:.
Could you mark that point on a map for me please? as i would like to film some traffic going past, not stopping at say a station, that spot looks ideal.

Copmanthorpe (ex-) level crossing:

Both are best for up trains, with the sun from behind in the afternoon.

The line up at York on the Sunday:

60009 was failed at Tyne Yard with a 'hot box' on the centre wheelset, driver's side. Such a shame, she was doing so well...

How did I get a pic of the line up? I travelled on the train itself, I don't think I'm too much of an enthusiast to pay £32.50 to see a line up of A4's!

All of the 'good' pics are now up on my Fotopic site.

It may be a while until I post the others, as it takes time to get perfection :wink:

Once I have finished editing my 'report', this will be added as the collection's commentary.
