Added 24 February 2020 - London (22 February 2020)
This was a day out in London with my wife, but as there was some engineering works taking place at Highgate Depot, I parked strategically at nearby East Finchley and managed a few battery loco pictures without causing too much friction :-)

There was a GBRf liveried class 92 on the Caledonian Sleeper, so I went for that and managed a few other bits and bobs too.

Despite the best efforts of Storm Dennis, I had an evening in London to seek out some engineering trains in the Hammersmith area. Boy was it blowy at thye top of the block of flats near Ravenscourt Park!

Added 27 January 2020 - Metropolitan Line Possession (25 January 2020)
I made my way down to London for some early morning battery loco action. I wanted to get a shot of trains passing through the disused Marlborough Road station, and this required the shot to be taken with traction current off so the trackside lighting would be on. Five trains plus a tamper passed through in quick succession, after which I made my way to the worksite near Lord's (disused), where, with a bit of patience, I eventually managed a very pleasing shot of L16 as it drew forward just as dawn was breaking.
