Stafford, Crewe & Chester 12 July : Off to try and find some freight workings today, so Stafford seemed a good choice; most photos here are from Stafford, with a few from Chester & Crewe, and just one from Wrexham. Day Four of the Heart of England Rover, and WET.

Wrexham, Chester, Crewe, Shrewsbury & Hereford 15 July : Day Seven of the Heart of England Rover (I didn't bother with Day Six owing to torrential rain). The idea today was to get to Pershore at 16.15, via Shrewsbury in time to photograph the Wrexham to Marylebone lunchtime working - it was cancelled...

Southampton 17 July : After spending Friday night in Southampton, I passed a bit of time on Saturday morning at Saxon Road footbridge, just a few yards from my brother's house. These are some of the photos I took during that time, returning home to Gosport (via Portsmouth Harbour) later in the day. Sunny & hot!

Worcester, Cheltenham, Newport & Cardiff 16 July : The return from Pershore, using the Freedom of Severn & Solent Rover, journeys were Pershore to Worcester Shrub Hill, Cheltenham Spa, Newport, Cardiff Central, then Newport to Southampton Central, where I spent the night at my brother's house. Disappointingly little at Newport except for one freight and two light engine moves. Rain at times, sunny periods.

Eastleigh (for 30777, 37706) 18 August : I was tempted to go to Eastleigh today since TWO steam excursions were expected: 30777 "Sir Lamiel" on 'The Dorset Coast Express' and Black 5 44932 on 'The Cathedrals Express'; however, 44932 failed at Clapham Jct apparently, being replaced by WCR 37706. Still, all good fun. There's a couple of photos from Fareham, where 59001 was on a stone train, plus some shots of 20310/11/12 and 07007 at Eastleigh Works.

Eastleigh (for 44932, 47500) 22 October : A very eventful, and mostly sunny day at Eastleigh, where (for a change) everything that was supposed to appear actually DID turn up, if sometimes late. The day's 'events' were Black 5 44932 + support coach, EWS 67016/19 t/t Pullmans up & down, unbranded 66578/9/80/1 in convoy from Maritime to 'warm storage' at the Works, and WCRC 47500 (ex-47770) with full maroon ECS rake; plus 66196 with 5Z66 Eastleigh TRSMD to Barrow Hill ECS, 66002 6O41, EMU 5913 on 5B39, 450 565 on 5B97, some freights, and all the usual runners & riders.

Eastleigh (for 47500, 60009+59203) 25 October : Another trip up to Eastleigh to meet someone at the station, so I hadn't any particular expectations; in the event, 'Tug' 60009 arrived with 59203 on 6O41, WCRC 47500 returned to Carnforth with ECS working 5Z93, a trio of class 67 'Skips' convoyed from the T & RSMD to Wembley, GBRf 66707 arrived with 4Y19 gypsum, and a couple of MPVs made an appearance on squirting duties. Plus most of the usual freights & units. Not bad at all, and gloriously sunny all day.
