Hi guys, New to the forum and turning back to a love of railways that I sadly left a decade or so ago. Things have changed quite a bit and as much as I've kept up to date with the mainstream changes to rolling stock, TOC's and infrastructure I sense there is lots for me to get my teeth back into judging by the variety of threads on here. I've got a bit of time on my hands at the moment so I'm looking at starting things off by getting back out there and enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of various railway stations and seeing and logging the various rolling stocks out on the UK network (must admit though it doesn't feel the same without the loco hauled passenger services that I used to watch up and down the WCML - such a shame that I'll never get to hear that unique sound made by the ultimate loco, the class 87 ). Anyway the reason for posting this was to gauge some ideas from you guys regarding my best options for getting a wider range of rolling stock logged down as I've only managed a couple of trips to Stafford so far and that has nearly cleared up the 390's and by the afternoon of my 2nd trip I was seeing the same voyagers and 350's over and over again. Looking at keeping things low cost to start with so wanted any advice regarding the best places to broaden my sightings of varying TOC stock in the West Midlands area. I have appointments at the start and end of the day in Stafford on Tuesday so was thinking of heading to Crewe in between these to check out some of the Northern/ATW stock although I guess the VTWC services at Crewe will be the same as those running through Stafford? Am I likely to see a greater variety of freight at Crewe compared to Stafford? I was also considering Derby to check out the EMT stocks but I guess that's probably worth delaying until the upgrade work has been completed there? Any other places within a reasonable radius of the Stafford area worth a visit?
