The Citadel - double headed Black 5s at Leyland 9.11.19
« on: November 09, 2019, 09:34:07 AM »
To a small extent my poor luck did for me again this morning. Got there with time to spare and well equipped for the 1 degree temperature. On time, sure enough the train appeared in the distance so I set the camera going and thought 'Odd - they're not travelling quickly. Is there some problem?'
Of course, what I couldn't know was they were approaching a single amber behind me so, sadly, they weren't doing any speed at all. Anyway..............

Had you known you could have taken your strimmer.
Plenty of time to cut those weeds down before the train arrived.

Nice video though. I rather like to see trains travelling at prototypical N Scale speeds.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I was hoping for something more like this, taken on a cheapo digital camera at Bamber Bridge about 3 years ago. Oddly enough, 44871 leading 45407 again :uneasy:

Anyway, before The Citadel came through rush hour occurred.......
