    Lost the early sunshine but it was worth a visit to Oakengates station.
    A feature of this years LSL runs has been the short headway after the preceding stopper, the Scot is recovering from a signal check.
    Mk3s hidden but they look nice externally, far glossier than when BR first turned them out.

    Well, when the train is on the move, the food won't be consumed where it was bought, so...

    I wonder if this will be the new normal timings for the BP - it's ony six minutes behind a service train at Gomshall, dropping to four by Reigate. A slightly late-running service train would see the BP ambling along at best.

    There might be a bit of water movement but someone has told me that these devices are called injectors. And of course you will hear a dog on board. What about the chow chow? :)

    Clan Line's loaded test run captured at Shere Heath, Gomshall. A soundtrack that has been missed!
