61306 Mayflower - 14 February 2015

A busy day for Class 47 no. 47580.  47580 was at the rear of LNER B1 61306 Mayflower for this circular tour from London Victoria via Guildford and Eastleigh.  The Class 47 seemed to do much of the work all day as we catch the trip at a couple of locations.  First, deep in the South Downs at Buriton near Buriton Tunnel:

Later, we see 61306 again following a water stop at a rain soaked Basingstoke:

16 December 2014

'Blacks 5s' 44871 & 45407 sweep through Newbury with this 'Cathedrals Express' trip for Bath and Bristol.

 A rather flawed sound recording is available on Soundcloud here.

Also running on this day was 34067 Tangmere with a trip from London Victoria to Yeovil Junction.  The return leg was run mostly after dark but you can listen to 34067 climbing away from Sherborne over on Soundcloud here.
