Despite a very miserable start to the summer, some good opportunities ensued nevertheless. In a wet and dismal June, a royal 67 and Britannia on the Alton line, followed within days by 37s on the test train, and a hyper rare run of a class 60 on the Holybourne tanks. The welcome return of 50 027 to the MHR - a proper run is eagerly awaited. Another set of 67s for VSOE filming. Various shots of A stock, now rapidly disappearing from the LU system, and some Virgin Pendolinos at Lichfield TV. Next, some shots of diesel operation on the Dean Forect Railway, taken during a brief family trip away. Finally, before a work day in Manchester, a few minutes viewing the trams in the morning sunshine at St Peter's Square.
