    Hi Chris, something strange here. That link takes us to the video uploads section on my YouTube channel which is supposed to be private!! Please delete/replace ASAP please.

    Cheers

    It doesn't take "us", it takes YOU! That link takes me to MY upload site. The link doesn't work as intended but there is no security issue.

    Thanks, just looked on there and there was a pass at Carnforth North junction at 11.49, 23 late. I think I will head out and enjoy the sun whilst waiting around Clitheroe/Langho area.

    I was at Whalley, clip being edited at the moment. She looked very nice in the warm 'summer' sun, also sounds well.

    Looks and sounds great, nice to see her on the main line.



    Nice shots Neil, I was wondering about trying for Pleasington, but the last couple of runs have shortened the Blackburn stop making it almost impossible with school mums traffic....:(

    Ralph,

    I don't know if its my computer/interweb connection or your video, but the first part was like watching through pea soup..........................................................................................

    Still, when it became clear, just before the viaduct, I enjoyed that ( well I would wouldn't I, liking everything LNER!) :) she looked and sounded good - Belle 1's shot from the other side was very picturesque, so a thumbs up from me (well I'd put one up if we had the smilies.......................................................................................................................................................)

    Works OK for me, on full screen as well. No other reports of problems and it's had 15 views so far on YT. Very strange.

    Firstly, my sincere apologies for yesterday's problems with the Light Test Run to Carnforth. I have no idea why the video link behaved like that - it always worked with the old forum software - perhaps it is something that can be looked into by the powers that be.
    Secondly thanks to Ralph for saving more people having problems.
    Now for today's Loaded Test Run. I've tried to embed this one with views at Clapham and Ramsgreave & Wilpshire:

    Hopefully that will work.
    Chris

    I think that it was just a glitch in the system somewhere along the line Chris and I think the link took people to their own account if already logged in to Youtube, all it did when I clicked it was take me to a youtube sign up page as Enterprise mentions at post 222 above. The new forum software also seems to embed youtube clips automatically as well from a standard browser address link.

    Austin, I thought that was you at Pleasington on the opposite platfrom, I thought I had got away without being filmed at Whalley in those dodgy shorts and then get caught in your footage at Pleasington! :confused:

    A bit of a disaster on the video front for me today, there was someone with a chainsaw not far from me at Whalley and I checked the footage breifly when I got back to the car and left the camera on play and at Pleasington it was touch and go whether the battery would last and it decided to die when the loco was about 150 yards away which is when I snatched up the still camera in your vid.

    Anyway a nice afternoon out in the sun and nice to see the B1 working well today.:)
