66196 with a heavy load

66196 went past the house today with a load of wagons and some sleepers. A welcome sight indeed! However, you’ll have to take my word for it, as all I had in my hand at the time was a pen. (I know what you’re thinking. No, I didn’t have a timetable in my hand!) 

I did, however, manage to photograph the number that I’d noted on a piece of old lottery paper.


Now. Just a general comment here. It’s difficult enough when we see posts like this. What is unforgivable, however, is this file on YouTube. It’s difficult enough being a spotter (or photter, and I should know!) but I see no reason to laugh at DelticMatt. His enthusiasm should be an inspiration to us all. It’s not just about the numbers, people. It’s about the thrill as well.

    That video clip was made with the permission and approval of ‘delticmatt’. I would not have published it otherwise.
