Where am I ?

Hi all,

I’ve not been able to post for ages due to workload, life, family and generally a utter lack of interest in anything once I’m at home.

Random highlights from the past weeks:

73202 Taking a couple of 442s (442413,442410) to Eastbourne.
Seeing 700033 on a test run.
Seeing some 165s ate Redhill (165213, 165108).

I have been playing about a bit with updating my Miles and Chains books and looking to guestimate a few of the new lines and stations.

I am hoping to go to Stratford (London) tomorrow then I am on leave next week and have two trips planned; one to the get the ‘Parliamentary’ train from South Ruislip to Paddington and return to High Wycombe and the second trip is to York with my daughter.

So a couple of posts to be made there.

If I can I am hoping to get my backside in gear and do a trip to Doncaster to photograph a few class 91 and maybe a trip to Toton with my lad.

So there we go. Maybe I just need a break from work stuff.
