60163 Tornado with a Cathedrals Express at Huntingdon station on the 10/12/2012..
 
The video below is of 60163 Tornado with a Cathedrals Express that had started at Peteborough. I took video of it leaving, befor getting on a train to Huntingdon. There was a water stop at Conington for Tornado that had come to Peterborough light engine from London that morning.  Then it was booked to stop for about 10mins to pick up passengers at Huntingdon station. Some of the passengers had time to get out and take a quick photo of Tornado. Being called back onto the train just befor it left. One man was so busy taking his photos that he missed the train!  This video starts at Peterborough station.

This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is on railways, but it is not just on trains, but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, signal boxes, wagons any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos.
 
Today Virgin  East Coast, GBRF and Great Northern are just some of the names on the trains. The name on the train does not mean, thats whos train it is these days. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More>
