  1. No, it really is up as it is going away from me (you can see the red lights on the loco) heading south on the nearest track.
  2. Ulgham Lane, north of Morpeth on the ECML in Northumberland for this afternoon.

  6. Cleaned the shelves where the spare rolling stock lives, a lot of dust had accumulated. Then I ran some trains.
  7. Now for this afternoon's photos, taken on the Newcastle to Middlesbrough line . I do know there are only four photos this afternoon. When I sorted them out for today a few weeks ago there was a reason - but I can't remember it now.

  13. The Great Central between Nottingham and Loughborough today with a few more photos than usual. Two were taken while the line was still in full use, the others much later after closure of the line which initially meant trains ran between Weekday Cross and British Platerboard at Rushcliffe Halt. Later British Plasterboard and the MoD at Ruddington were served by a new connection to the GCR at Loughborough. Note: There are a lot more photos of the line in balck and white days in my black and white photo thread Nottingham Victoria rema
  14. A few more photos from Pilmoor today, on the ECML north of York. There is one black and white and four in colour, some don't have a train. However, they are all worthy of study, especially the ones showing the overbridge with its mix of brick and concrete. I hope the others will be of interest to those who like infrastructure, as well as those who need detail photos. They are in order from south to north.
