24 February 2019 - 1938 Tube Stock Heritage Train
Added 28 February 2019
A very enjoyable day in London to photograph the 1938 Tube Stock which was out on a tour. It was a lovely sunny day, so I tried to make the most of outside locations, only going below ground when it did a lap of the Circle Line. The first location was from a block of flats near Ravenscourt Park, followed by Temple and Baker Street, then Harrow-on-the-Hill and Sudbury Town.

20 February 2019 - D Stock and a Few Other Bits
Added 22 February 2019
I made my way to Northampton after work to capture 230005 on its way from Long Marston to Bletchley. Not only did I get the 230, but also managed a 90 (twice), a 66 and a pair of 37s.

19 February 2019 - Tornado Farewell
Added 22 February 2019
I couldn't resist nipping out from work to RAF Cottesmore to see a flypast of three Tornado aircraft (which are soon to be taken out of service). With a flypast, it's a gamble where you stand as they could pass over at any angle and from any direction, so I was grateful that my choice of location was spot on....more through luck than judgement. Oh, and the sun also decided to briefly pop out as they passed overhead.

16 February 2019 - London Area
Added 22 February 2019
A trip to London, which was really a non-railway trip, but I did manage a few little bits which included a class 37 railtour and 73s on a snow and ice train.


13-15 February 2019 - Sunrises and Sunsets and a Couple of Trains
Added 22 February 2019
A few skyscapes on the way to and from work, a class 710 move and a backlit 66.


9 February 2019 - Matlock Bath
Added 10 February 2019
An afternoon out with my wife to Matlock Bath where I captured this image of the Jubilee Bridge.

7 February 2019 - Long Buckby and Northampton
Added 10 February 2019
I made an after work move to Long Buckby to see the transfer of 230004 to Bletchley, but missed it by 3 minutes due to it running early. I caught the next train to Northampton to try and capture it there, but it set off before my arrival. I took a couple of unit pics, then headed back to Long Buckby where I captured 90020 on the Dagenham to Mossend, which I was quite pleased with, so it wasn't a wasted trip.

Added 10 February 2019
