    FINALLY got around to starting my January collection, due to a various reasons preventing me from doing so ;)

    A sunny morning at Uffington, 57313 on the WAG Express, and today spent chasing 37259 and 37605 on 1Z18, in the sun and snow :)

    All can be found here :arrow: http://daviddawson.fotopic.net/c1632847.html

    Comments welcome :)
    Thanks
    Dave

    Very good as always - I thought Coalbrookdale would be a good place for photographing the 37s today!

    Rather than starting a new thread for it, here's my (very first) youtube video of the 37s passing Sutton Bridge this afternoon:

    605 really is a noisy brute!

    Nice stuff Dave, particularly like the 37 in the snow!

    And what was 57313 doing on the WAG-Ex?

    Thanks :)

    313 is the other Arriva 57, dropped on the back for some reason. It worked the outward that day too. 315 was the other 57.

    One still hears it referred to as Jif now and again anyway, so I should imagine both are accepted pieces of speech :p

    That Coalbrookdale place looks pretty sweet, if having a slightly multiple personality to its name. Great shots.

    Thanks mate, it's a lovely place to sit and watch the trains go by, when they want to ;)

    Just the one of 37259 and 37605 returning from their honeymoon in Pwllheli today http://daviddawson.fotopic.net/p55714899.html

    Cheers

    well Jiffy is defined as "a very short time" so yeah it can be used if your considering how quickly it has became January again.
    Sorry thought I'd be the smart guy for a change.

    Good shot - platform 8 in full use then! ;)

    I noticed today as I walked over the Dana footbridge how the neat patches of grass in that part of the station made the area look rather model railway like...
