Was it re-routed? Rochester is on the itinerary. Sorry - just read the small print!

Originally it was scheduled for Guildford but the new route was due to engineering work.
That viaduct is just at the back of the car park where I work.

Well done Steve. Did it become stationary at some point on the viaduct or did you have lots of cameras? R-

It kept moving, one camera, zoom lens and a motordrive = 51 pictures in about 200 yards.

And I got absolutely soaked by the rain.

Hi Steve
Nice series of shots - not the sort of place I would have considered as a photospot. I must get out more!
