With "Abandoned", "Rust in peace" and "That sinking feeling" thrown in for good measure.

There's a steam special, the Royal Duchy, due through Totnes this coming Sunday (7 August), hauled by this engine:



46233 Duchess of Sutherland.

If they stick to the itinerary I've seen she should (unusually) stop in Totnes to take on water on the return journey. I'll try and get her on film.

I haven't used my video camera for a while, so put it on charge yesterday to film 46233 today.

I went up to Castle Meadow at just after midday and filmed around the area, tested where I wanted to zoom and pan, etc. When the train arrived THE BLOODY CAMERA WOULDN'T WORK. I think the battery is dead: I'll have to get a new one.

I'll try to film it with my ordinary camera tonight when it comes back through and stops for water.

Well, I managed to film her despite a couple of "Ooh look, all these people with cameras have left us a nice place to stand, right in front of them." morons (friends of yours, Koni?)

I'll post it tomorrow sometime.

Sorry Squirt, no whistle. :sad:

The second shot is taken from the footbridge across the river to the South Devon Railway and the Rare Breeds Farm.

The drivers do NOT to blow their whistle when they see trainspotters as they know it pisses them off.Most drivers driving a 56 or 60 hold a newspaper over the loco number as that makes the spotters jump up and down with fury.Muhahahahaha

True story.
One time a driver held a newspaper over the loco number and the spotter phoned up a EWS boss and complained. They all just had a good laugh about it.
