Hopefully we will get some more good footage (arm fracture healing permitting) over the Easter weekend between us. And if any of our website viewers are about please take pictures especially and send them on to us.

I was surprised to see it approaching Aston and when I realised that it might be going up the SSR as the signal was at danger I raced along the platform just as it got the feathers through approach control. Had been up and down the line most of the freezing and very windy afternoon taking pictures and videos supplementing Robs so was quite pleased with this

Often see these going past Tamworth Higher level, Unusual to see going up the X-City Line and through Lichfield City. Wish i was at Lichfield to catch it coming past the station.
