“About time too”, you may well say! I’ve just finished work on the final three volumes covering 2011:
- Vol. 52, LMS Locos – Princess Elizabeth, Leander, 8F 48151 and a plethora of Black Fives;
- Vol 53, BR Standard Class 7 locos – Oliver Cromwell’s third full year on the mainline and Britannia’s first since overhaul.
- Vol 54, 3-Cylinder Pacifics – Duke of Gloucester, Tornado and Bittern running as Dominion of Cananda.
It’s now time to archive the files, clear the project from my NLE program and return to 2012 footage. Looking at the number of camera tapes my chums and I have used up, there’s not quite so much material to work through as the previous year. There’s some good stuff in there, though, including winter Cumbrian Mountain Expresses, summer Wemouth Seaside Expresses and Royal Duchies, Christmas Cathedral Expresses and more from our visits to Scotland in the spring.
