Choppers …….

Hi all,

Brought the camera today so looking forward to popping up to the station after 16: to get some shots of the 20s and 50049 (50035 had a fault so never travelled).

So far today 700113 came past Selhurst at 08:30 on 1W82 Brighton to Bedford. at 13:31 7O68 Acton T.C. to Purley Foster Yeoman was 59101.
66125 at the head of 6Z79 0910 Marks Tey Tarmac to Crawley New Yard R.M.C.

Well that went well. Managed to get out the office and up to Selhurst platforms early enough to stake out a place to get my shots at the London end of platform 1. 20205 lead 20187 with 50049 in the rear. The convoy stopped a for a few moments I was able to race forward and get a video of them heading south. 0Z50 09:40 Kidderminster S.V.R. to East Grinstead

Tuesday’s Offerings (28/03/2017)

Hello Everybody …

It’s 08:30 and nothing of note at the moment. That said, there is something interesting tomorrow. 0Z50 is reported on the se-gen yahoo group is a loco move from Kidderminster S.V.R. to the Bluebell Railway. By all accounts 20182 and 20205 will be bringing 50035 and 50049 down on this path. I’m hoping to bring camera to work so I can pop up to the station after work for a few shots when they pass.

Back to Today.
Due to a numpty I missed 6V60 Ardingly to Acton but at 11:56 7V50 Crawley Foster Yeoman to Acton T.C. passed with a shiny 59004 at the front. 66161 was at the head of 7Y36 1031 Cliffe Brett Marine to Crawley Foster Yeoman.
59103 sauntered past on 7O68 Acton T.c. to Purley Foster Yeoman and shortly after 66089 was on 6M00 Newhaven Day Aggregates to Wembley Eur Fgt Ops Cntre.
