    She continues to amaze me with just how loud she is. The noise coming out of her chimney up Sapperton Bank was just biblical!

    My humble offering, firstly from Lyneham, and then, the main event... Sapperton! I hope you enjoy the video :)

    How come this loco has a whistle (2:53 in that video) instead of a hooter?

    'Pedant mode' If you are referring to the two approaching, there's nothing vintage about them, going by their style most likely built in the last 10/15 years, and I think it's the River Seven....

    The shot with the two narrow boats approaching is the river Avon at Evesham, shot from by the marina.

    The shot with the single boat approaching under the viaduct with the hole in it is the Worcester and Birmingham canal, shot from the Rainbow Hill canal bridge.

    Won’t argue boats but I live in Worcester and I can assure you that the photo with the bridge with the circular hole in it is over the canal.
