Added 10 January 2024 - Bogey Green 69 (9 January 2024)
Primer painted 69010 was captured passing through Melton Mowbray with a class 701 in tow. This wasn't a planned shot, I was shopping in Melton when I checked my phone to see that the train was passing Syston. My chosen location was quite shadowed, but it made for a exhausty, heat hazey kind of picture.

Added 1 January 2024 - Shenstone (23 December 2023)
A trip over to Shenstone to capture retro-liveried 323221, but it had changed diagram and I didn't see it. Never mind, still got a few decent pictures of WMR liveried 323s.

A night shot of class 40 D213 working The Statesman at Loughborough. I almost lost the shot to a Meridian going the other way. I quickly moved forward along the platform and when I pressed the Meridian was right alongside me....a bit too close for comfort!
