|5 hours on the footbridge at Kidderminster on day 1 of the gala kept me busy, not just filming on the day but editing and uploading over the past week. 20 locos are seen, but that does include a couple of 66s on Round Oak trains. Also a few DMUs pass by on the "other" railway.
In total, the playlist lasts about 75 minutes and is split into 14 sections - so you can easily pick what you want to watch.
The day started off sunny and warm, but changed to cold and windy (and wet as I headed home at about 3pm) When 50008 was started under the footbridge it drowned out the sound of some of the trains, but it did eventually head off to Bewdley. Towards the end of the videos the gusty wind can be heard, oh, and a yappy dog - but it's all part of the fun.
Now to start on day 2.......
