  1. I had a trip up to the north of Spain last summer on one of these. Chamartín Aves by McGomez441, on Flickr And whilst waiting at La Coruña around 8:30h for the train back south the sleeper arrived, hauled by 333.406. La Coruña tren hotel by McGomez441, on Flickr

  3. Had a trip over to Alicante this afternoon and dropped past the materials base. 58024, 015, 043, 030 were at the western end whilst 58029 and 047 were at the eastern end. Imagine trying to jot down this number as you were going past Toton on a railtour.... and the other 100+ locos that were usually present.........

  4. Just cobbled together some Grid action on a rake of PGAs.
  5. No one seems to know for sure but there are test trains running as can be seen on this guys Flickr stream. https://www.flickr.com/photos/lagunadani/ Hope that helps.
  6. I´ve not been too active on the photography front lately. Here are a couple of photos from Friday afternoon. The line from Murcia to Albacete closed to traffic after the last arrival on Friday 1st March to allow for the commisioning of the "Camarillas bypass" the cuts 16km off the journey and a saving of 20 minutes. I managed to get a couple of shots of the penultimate northbound Altaria service just north of Cieza where the new line will join the existing route. 334.022 was doing the honours. Desvio Camarillas 1 by McGomez441, on Flickr Desvio Camarillas 2 by McGomez441, on Flickr The line is due to enter service on the 19th of March.
  7. Great film. Thanks for bringing it to a wider audience. Marshmoor (Welham Green) where I worked back in the 80s was particularly interesting. An impressive crossover from down slow to up slow.
  8. I finally got around to editing a short video of the PGAs behind 45004.
  9. My rake of PGAs arrived over Christmas and very nice they are too. Here are a couple of images of 45004 hauling them through the station. Cavalex Redland PGAs 02 by McGomez441, on Flickr Cavalex Redland PGAs 01 by McGomez441, on Flickr A bit of video was also done but I have just discovered that the You Tube editor that was so easy to use has been withdrawn so curently looking at other options.
  10. Hi Pete. Sorry to hear about the poor quality of the 3D printed posts. Have a look for a brand called 87Train. They do metal versions but from what I can find, they seem to be out of stock everywhere I looked.
  11. Hi Mike. The northern side where the high speed line is situated is fully fenced off but has a tarmac road running alongside. Unfortunately the high speed lines are slightly higher than the yard but you can still see the locos, moreorless. The Iberian gauge lines on the south facing side are unfenced and you can easily scramble up the bank to get a better view and walk the entire length of the yard on scrub land with good views of the whole yard. I´ve never tried to get inside the compound as it is completely fenced off and there is security at the eastern end entrance. I´ve only ever gone at weekends so couldn´t tell you if there is much movement during the working week. With regards the other 58s in Spain, the Albacete 4 are still parked up in the same position as I went past the base twice mid-August. That leaves 2 unaccounted for. Regards Andy

  13. I´m only 4 and a bit years late to this thread but the location looks like it is East Hyde, just north of Harpenden. Look for Tim Easters Flickr site as it is one of his favoured locations. That would also tie in with Eastwestdivides info regarding the Dunstable Cement service.
