A selection of photos taken in December of 2 x 4 HSTs, and a pair of power cars out for a Sunday morning leisurely trip from Long Rock to Laira & return on 15th.
The blue slam door sets are due to finish very shortly, so a must to capture them East of Bodmin where the vegetation has recently been cleared at Dobwalls (Lantoom).
43156 works 2C85 back west passing Coombe St Stephen just as the sun dips away over the hedge row behind me.
The clearance at Dobwalls near the A390 Sperritt Tunnel is remarkable, giving a superb broadside view of a down train. A green 2 x 4 Castle set is almost lost in the shot with the village behind it. Ground Control doing a fantastic job along the line St Germans to Onslow (Bodmin).
Finally for today - fresh pixels straight off the camera - 43041 & 43188 pass Trenance near Burngullow with a test run Long Rock to Laira & return, the sunlight starkly lighting the barren landscape.
Many thanks Craig the winter sun brings brilliant opportunities.
