Since I broke my arm, my favourite place for watching trains has become Goring & Streatley - cheap-ish parking and lifts to get an old man from platform to platform! A period of four hours today saw not one but three Class 37 movements. I missed filming the first - 37.601 hauling a Heathrow Express set away to go into store, but got a clip of her light engine returning - MAQ03567.m4v Sorry it's a short snip - I'm trying to balance and shoot with a dodgy arm! She was preceded by 37.812 in the more familiar BR Blue livery. Sadly neither making much engine noise as they zoomed along. MAQ03565.m4v 37.812 was heading to Reading Triangle sidings, I believe to pick up another stock move. Eleven other 66-hauled freights and the usual Class 60-hauled oil train. Who needs a train set?
Health Warning - taken on a handheld mini-camera by a rank amateur simply enjoying watching trains and in very windy conditions, so turn sound down! Anyone like Hoovers? 50014 and 50049 in GBFr livery pass Pangbourne with two barrier wagons on a wagon move from Kidderminster (SVR!) to Reading Traincare depot today. A one-off working. They came back about an hour later LE, but I messed up the focus! MVI_1649.m4v The Class 60 on the oil tanks is a regular working around 1400 from Theale Murco sidings. Sorry about the wind noise, you can just about hear the 60 purr through. Those bogie tank wagons might make a nice model, lads? MVI_1651.m4v
