I literally live down the road from the Harmans Cross foot crossing, so no more than 30mins ago, I was able to get a half decent pic of Flying Scotsman - would be better if my camera didn't decide to go into the 2M 4:3 mode, but that's why we've got photoshop.

I'm not sure about you lot but I've had a great week; the last week I've been in the peak district, and what a lovely contrast that is. Originally, there were gonna be a lot of pics on here but it turns out that my camera just doesn't like working when I'm the one using it, so basically, I need a new camera -sooo fun! But at least here's what came out well(ish).

This was on Tue, at the Midland Railway Centre, they were just shunting some of the Royal Class stock to get to the Dutchess of Sutherland out for a boiler test, just interesting to see it in the open.

This is obviously gonna be Crich on the Wed, did have the ND90 running at a point which was a lovely ride, but just found this more secluded spot on the woodland walk to be rather nice. Also just love all Blackpoolian trams.

45382

An actual spotting! A Colas Class 70 passing Didcot hauling 4 ballast waggons, only 2 of which were full. Just a bit odd.

45383

Finally, this is the first of the Saints to be made; interesting but in my mind, underpowered and honestly a bit ugly - don't know why, just is in my mind.

Also thanks to all who wished me a good birthday, always nice to be noticed in the community.
