Saphos Trains aren't very welcoming to timers. I asked but wasn't allowed to stand in a vestibule from Newport to Llanvihangel Summit on a Welsh Marches Express. In the Mk1 FO non-diner the carriage's centre vestibules have been given over to a high table and power point and are used for the tea and coffee jugs. In any case the tables are too high to see over to milepost. Back to the 10th, great to see what we used to see in the 1980s and 1990s in particular - the charge around Mallerstang to the summit. Frequently used to pick up 4-5mph, sometimes more. With 10A powered trains that's hardly ever seen these days, not even from the Scot and so far, BIL.
