Merchant Navy class locomotive 35018 'British India Line' was hauling the train (one of four steam loco's to haul the train that day). I've never seen a Merch...

Re: Snowy Manchester 1 March 2018

Well done for braving the cold. Strange the Swiss didn't depart - you would have thought they were used to such conditions! Good to see the four-engined heavies on snow clearing duties, and always a pleasure to see a retrojet. Cheers for that- it certainly was challenging- there were'nt many of us ...

Snowy Manchester 1 March 2018

Drove over to Manchester to catch the swiss A340 which was due to depart from Air Livery. Due to the weather it didnt leave (the beast from the east was in full flow at the time-minus 2 with a 40 mph easterly wind - felt like minus 9). Stuck around for a couple of hours -just a few from the visit wi...

Re: Some Sunday OTT traffic from West Lancs

Fantastic shots! Had Flightradar on and binoculars out here in St Annes on Sun afternoon myself-crystal clear skies for a change- thought you might be taking advantage of it-best day weatherwise we've had for quite some time.
Keep them coming!
