Is it just me or did some wagons uncouple before entering the viaduct at 6:24?
Yes indeed! I did reshoot this clip when I noticed but when I came to edit the video I forgot and so included the wrong footage.

Here's the correct clip - plus the clip I decided not to use of the three-train scene (see above). If you stay to the end, I think you'll realise why I decided to wait for a while and reshoot it.

My latest effort. I couldn't let the spell of dry weather pass without a full operating session (three days of running to represent one day on the railway).

Boy, was it hot!!

Another classic video Rik, your line looks wonderful in the sunshine. Well done in the heat we have been enduring, worth every scorching minute!

Another brilliant video Rik. Your'e a braver man then me going out in that heat.
It got to 40 on our thermometer in the garden every day since last Monday.

Far to hot even to sleep properly...

Thanks chaps. I must admit it did get rather warm, though I did stay out of the midday sun for a couple of hours.

We've had rain here this afternoon - a welcome relief.

A masterpiece :salute: I do so enjoy watching your videos Rik. The station 🚉 at the farthest terminus at Beston “ it’s about 1 minute into the video looks like it has had to much 🌞 and is wilting 🤣🤣

Would have loved to see the river again but I guess it’s gone dry with the drought we are having 🤔

Can’t wait to see more :salute:

Thanks Rod
No the river hasn't run dry. There's a brief shot of it at 8:46 in Part 1. It was difficult to get shots of it which also included two trains. :lol:

Hi all
My latest. This one outlines the eight categories I now use for deciding which wagons go where on the railway when using the freight management program on my trusty old Psion pocket computer. Unlike previous versions of the freight manager software, I've had to write the program so it would fit into the 1Mb of memory on the Psion - which was considered to be quite generous when the computer was made in 1993!

That was a really informative video Rik. I have learnt a little bit more about how trains operated with goods. It seems it wasn't that important to have all the same wagon, skips or vans on the same train, which for me as it is for you also, far more interesting.

Sorry again though for picking up a little problem for which I know I think, you know about. The little bump in the track going over the bridge. The lighter rolling stock gave a little jump, but the heavier ones didn't seem to cause any at all. Is the track a little bit misaligned :scratch:
I did also notice that you have got a pretty standard colour scheme for you rolling stock, which I think does look good when you have a full mixed train. :thumbright:

I just enjoy seeing your videos and they give me loads of inspiration and ideas which I may coy slightly if that's ok.

Really well produced video Rik, up to your exceptionally high standards.
All the locations are most convincing scenically and functionally.

Hi Rod
I didn't notice the bump by the brewery siding until I came to edit the video - by which time of course it was too late. I think it was a small stone or twig in the wing rail of the point which moved as the wagons rolled over it. At least it didn't derail them, although if it did I'd have re-shot that clip.

Thanks for the feedback chaps. I did wonder if this one was a bit too technical, but I think I got away with it ....... :shock:
