Vac to Vac

Just for a change I thought that I would post a video on the blog rather than photos and, furthermore, a video of a real train instead of a model!
The video features 50031 'Hood' and 50049 'Defiance' departing Bristol Parkway on March 25th 2006 at the end of the Pathfinder Tours 'Redmire Rambler' from Cardiff to Redmire and back.
These two powerful Type 4s certainly shatter the peace and quiet of the night as they apply 5,400 BHP to haul their train away and into the darkness.
This clip is actually the closing minute or so of a longer video that I made of the trip and it has got me thinking that it is high time we treated ourselves to another of these excellent rail tours!
