  1. You’re a lucky stiff, Dave. James Adeney & myself were both set at the walkbridge south side and we got snookered by a westward move on the close track by about 20 seconds to the negative.
    So off we go to Scotch Block, (Halton Mile 30) and the sun pops out in our faces.
    Thats life. Guess we’re better off looking at our old pictures………:o(

  2. Arnold, it is all about the timing. You never know when you might get blocked by another train. 393 came off the Halton and I thought he was going to block me. 396 was still going by on the north track when 393 showed up on the south. Snapped a going away shot of 2289-2104.

    Dave.

  3. Yeah, I know all about the timing, Dave. :o ) Another 30 seconds and you could have suffered the same fate as we.
    Seems to happen more often with the “good” trains, but of course everything is just chance.
    My 50 mile round trip ended up being a 100 mile round trip, and the sun came out in our mugs at Scotch Block on a day advertised as’cloudy’.
    I’ll try and forget Dec 22, 2012. (grin)

  4. Good on ya Dave! I did manage to get some video before we were blocked. I’ll have to post it because a loud, anguished, scream came from the boys behind us on the upper part of the bridge when 393 showed up.

  5. Great shot Dave! I’ll also have to echo the comments made by Arnold and James, as I was there with them – probably one of the guys giving the loud, anguished, scream James mentions.
