    Here with the fastest ECS I have ever seen! (they were late) and at Harpendon with the pax loaded, trying to make up time.

    Either way the 5's put on a cracking show for me.

    It's those points at the north end of Hartford Loop. Every time a steam loco passes over them at speed it starts rocking from side to side.
