    Watched it on my phone in the car with the sound through the car speakers, sounded really good.

    Must try that more often.

    Well done to WCRC for quickly providing replacement motive power. The bad news, I only found out 44932 had failed after the class 47 had appeared at Wilpshire. The good news, it wasn't raining and Mrs W didn't come along. For the record, 15C, RT & 41mph. I've attached a video - DO NOT WATCH IF OFFENDED BY DIESELS!

    Thanks Steve, I have to admit though that I don't like using it but it does get to awkward places and some times gives a different perspective. Each to their own I suppose but give me a proper camera any day.

    ps. have a look at John Longdens web site, he recently got a drone and clearly loves it, got some great shots on the S&C.

    Yesterday afternoon we tried to do this location that looks back towards Appleby station but the path has now been blocked off with a fence so not sure if the owner will allow access to the lineside fence from his property. IMG_3452.png
