Up the hill

I have posted a fair few shots on this blog taken from the overhead bridge at Farmborough Heights, usually of steam working up the hill to Dombarton and onto Moss Vegas. 

Having now spent a fair bit of time converting DVDs which had been originally shot on tape back into a digital format I have collected a range of locos tackling the hill in the late 1990s. And as I haven't been particularly thrilled about the results of loading videos direct onto the blog I am now trying to link to my YouTube channel.  So, here goes...

Lets start with 3801 on the Cocky...

And on film...

Might as well throw in another video of 01 - this time with 7344 hitching a ride. Must have been fun for the crew inside the cab of the 73.

While we are doing 38s, might as well do 3830. Here it is so fresh from overhaul it is yet to painted.

And here is how she looked after a coat of paint.

And now it is time to finish up with SMR's 18 - Bob to the locals - on the Cocky on a wet day.

And then on a dry day, with 4833 pushing hard.

Ciao for now!
