Recent Pictures - 2010

Here are some frame-grabs from recent material; all are JPEG files, between about 10 and 30 kB. I realise I've been a bit remiss lately in not keeping this page up-to-date...
30777 Sir Lamiel passing Quarr Farm on the climb from Swanage to Harmans Cross on the Swanage Railway on Bank Holiday Monday 31st May 2010. This was the return leg of a train from Waterloo. 44871 hauled the outward leg
6201 Princess Elizabeth passing Rodbourne, between Swindon and Badminton, with a train to Swansea, Sat 19th June 2010. She was deputising for 70013 Oliver Cromwell.
Also on Sat 19th June 2010, 44871 climbs past Upton Scudamore, between Westbury and Warminster, with the return trip of a train from Heywards Heath to Bath and Bristol. 44871 was deputising for 30777.
Another visitor to the Swanage Railway returning to London. 60163 Tornado passes Overton on Wed 16th June. This was a bit of a last-minute shot. I was still walking to my chosen location when I heard her whistling in the distance. I didn't have time to set up the tripod so this is hand-held. However, the blurring is due to the speed of the train and a fairly slow shutter speed (1/50th sec). You don't notice the blur when you see the video, though!
