If you’re looking for somewhere else to talk about locomotives and railway related stuff on the interweb, don’t forget we have a messageboard forum attached to the blog where you can talk about this stuff instead, as well as a comments box below each article on the blog.Continue reading “Talk About Trains”
Today I’ve made a brief upgrade to the website so that it runs over SSL with an https:// at the start of the domain instead of the traditional less secure http:// version.
In theory this should make the site more secure, run faster + keep google happy.
It’s also now required to have an https:// at the start of the url for certain well known popular social media websites to allow your website to use their website for log-in & registration, such as Facebook Connect and similar website features.
There was one clip missing, likely lost in the Seagate hard drive failure, but it wasn’t all that brilliant to begin with. One evening in April/May 2008 I caught a glimpse of it doing a trial run to Whitby and back prior to the runs featured in this video which did survive.
Lately I have been adding extra options to help you find LocomotivesUK on the Interweb via Social Media, and connect with other enthusiasts of railway things from the smallest Z-Gauge model to the biggest mainline locomotives on the planet.
In addition to the Twitter page, Facebook Page & YouTube channel there is now a Reddit Group + a Facebook Group for you to choose from, as well as the forums integrated into this wordpress blog.
Just follow the links in the above tweet, or there’s also follow buttons from AddThis in the top-right corner of the blog (which also pop-up after you’ve shared the content here to your own social media profiles when you see something too good not to share).
On the 28th of August 2018 I made an impromptu follow-up visit to Grosmont with my Fuji F550EXR.
I wasn’t originally planning on going there, but I’d picked up a few items in town while I was down there for a “picnic” to sit outside somewhere to eat, and as all my usual spots to sit and eat in Whitby were packed with tourists I decided to pop down to Grosmont with it.
While there I took the opportunity to try grab some footage to create some content, and slightly over a year later, I’ve finally got round to editing and uploading it into a video.
It took me much longer than originally planned to edit it – 364 days 17hours 21minutes since I took the first still image of the trip through to when the finished video clip was done rendering and ready to upload, to be precise – but I finally did it.
On Thursday 2nd August 2018 I popped round to Grosmont in my car to have a quick play with my camera. I originally only planned to stay a short while once I got there at 1:47pm (that’s if the clock on my camera was right), but ended up staying until 3:20pm instead.
