This program begins at Elford Loop in Staffordshire where a variety of both freight and passenger trains can be seen. The location sports a loop which provides excellent viewing for the study of both locomotives and rolling stock. This section will also provide you with a few surprises! Moving north to Barnetby, this location must rank as a top hot spot for the pure freight enthusiast.
We visited three locations in this area for non-stop rail action. We filmed the Class 56 hard at work together with Class 60s and 66s in wonderful afternoon sunshine. Filmed on separate days, Linslade on the four track section of the West Coast Mainline sees a considerable amount of both freight and passenger trains including the celebrated Class 86s and 87s plus Virgin's newly introduced Class 390 Pendolinos. Also in this section you see the illusive Scotts sleeper and a Class 37 deputizing for a Class 66 on a stone working;all this and much, much more.
