    How weird to have a mk2d coach in with all the mk1 GWR stock. Looks very strange.

    An excellent well shot video.

    Looked a good spot :)

    One thing I am wondering is how you get your videos online so quickly. Do you have a laptop and mobile internet connection or similar?

    Not really, the coach of a charter rake at each end has to be either non-passenger carrying or a mk2 or greater if it holds passengers. I can't recall why, but them's the rules.

    It wasn't the back coach as there was a genny van on the back. The other end has the support coach plus a chocolate and cream mark 2.

    Thanks for watching and yes I used the time between tours to make the short video and upload with the dongle I have Thankfully it was a good connection at Little Stretton.

    I suspect that Riviera were just short of coaches. They put together 3 charter trains of Mark one stock for Saturdays Ludlow charters.
