I saw it in the station as I drove past at lunchtime. It was very smoky.

Aww it was great! I was on brightside bridge near meadowhall station! Got a few shots of it, there were quite a few people on there, although I wasn't surprised! Couple of really great trains there, wish I'd been on it!

Took my son and his friend down to Sheffield station to see this and must admit I did feel a little intimidated by the older ones that were down there

Good pic there Mosboro Owl :)

 

We went to Butterthwaite bridge thinking we'd be the only ones,

ended up about 25 others scattered about the bridge and surrounding fields,

Although not a "trainy" I enjoyed the brief pass by the train,

I was stood right over the top as it chugged its way beneath me,

 

Here's a couple of "grabs" from the camcorder,I took more with the lumix but haven't looked at them yet,

basket bridge 1

 

basket bridge 2

 

Everything turned white as I was surrounded in smoke :P

and within a few seconds it was gone,rounding the bend over stn road with a "WoooWooo" :hihi:

 

Brilliant stuff :)

I missed the planed shot at totley as it was running 14 early - the timings were a little bit generous with all that power

 

Any way a good day
