Class 68s

13 posts in this topic

68005 worked 4H47 Mossend - Inverness yesterday which is the first Class 68 to work a revenue earning train in Scotland and I filmed it at 0545 in the morning

 

 

And then I filmed it again this time returning back to Mossend

 

 

Also managed to get a picture as the light was better

And I filmed it once again today on 4D47, this time at Bannockburn and unlike the first 2 the LED headlights on the 68 decided to confuse the camera slightly which they seem to be doing to a lot of others

 

 

Meanwhile my other camera was unaffected by this so I got a picture as well

cant wait to see the Chiltern Railways one's they look much smarter than the DRS ones really look like an executive loco

I like both the liveries and also the look and sound of the 68, definately prefer them to the 66's

The first Class 68 passenger working was also yesterday with 68006 + 68005 on 1Z25 Glasgow Central - Gleneagles as an extra service for the Ryder Cup
