Much pleasure can be gained by watching regular passenger traffic. And goods trains. However, even more fun can be found looking out for charter traffic, or railtours. Not only are the times of these trains harder to find but also the sheer variety of traffic will bring a smile to even the most jaded, world-weary, depressed and psychotic spotter’s face.
Yesterday I waited for three hours by a railway track near me to capture, on video, D1015 and it’s complement of carriages. The long wait was well worth it, as you can see!
