A brilliant location for photograpahy with all the correct weather conditions! My first time photographing a moving train. This is my favourite shot.

Also two 150s in both directions, an HST (as above), and a SWT 159.

Find the pictures here: http://paigntonrailwaycentre.50webs.com/261105.htm

EDIT: I noticed that 150247 had a plastic bag over its coupling device, any reson for this?

Thanks

That does look a nice location - bet it was a bit cold there today though.

The plastic bags on Wessex Trains units are to prevent icing of the couplers (and goes quite well with the sticky tape holding some of their 153's together).

Ahh i see! I thought it looked a bit silly. Although the second 150/2 did not have this. It certainly was chilly but well worth it!
