    Yes, I was there for Tornado - and a few months later for 4965 and 5043. Both days were gloriously sunny

    Finally finished editing The Great Britain V. I started with nearly 10 hours of footage, and have ended up with about 2 and three-quarter hours on two discs. Here's a YouTube clip from Day 3 of 45305 on the line to Kyle of Lochalsh, and I'll post another, probably Duchess Of Sutherland on the S&C, tonight.

    Where did the summer go?

    Well, it took slightly longer than I'd intended, but I've loaded another video to YouTube. This one shows 46233 Duchess of Sutherland at Smardale and Wilpshire. Both are angles one wouldn't normally use, at least, not in decent weather. However, there was a lot of rain blown in on a strong easterly wind, and no direct sun, so the first priority was to get some shelter from the wind. Note the old NER line from Kirby Stephen East to Tebay at the southern end of Smardale viaduct - long gone now, of course.
