LNER Class A4 4498 (60007) Sir Nigel Gresley Steam Locomotive Video Compilation

This latest addition to the LocomotivesUK Youtube Channel features all the footage I managed to piece together of LNER A4 60007 (4498) Sir Nigel Gresley over a period of years from 2002 until 2015.

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.

The opening 3 still images were taken at Pickering Station on 14th April 2015, a couple of months before that Seagate Hard Drive problem I keep mentioning. Thankfully I was able to recover them from my personal Facebook albums. Continue reading “LNER Class A4 4498 (60007) Sir Nigel Gresley Steam Locomotive Video Compilation”

D7628 At Whitby Railway Station – 20th June 2018


Not really too much of a story to go with this one.

As per usual, I had my Fuji F550EXR Digital Camera with me while I was out and about doing errands in town of some sort. Continue reading “D7628 At Whitby Railway Station – 20th June 2018”

LocomotivesUK Expands It’s Presence On the Interweb

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).

NYMR’s 76079 Steam Locomotive at Whitby Station (6th July 2018)

I took this footage on the morning of 6th July 2018 while trudging back from capturing footage from the Cook 250 Event going on in the town the same morning.

I only really caught a very short clip of video footage as the locomotive wasn’t really doing much other than sitting at the platform producing steam, but I also caught some fairly decent still images I was able to drop into this video to help pad it out a bit.

76079 Video from 2016

On 1st November 2016 I got the site’s official YouTube channel properly underway with the above video of Steam locomotive 76079 running back from Whitby.

I extracted it from a much larger video I shot for my personal YouTube channel, walking along the “Permitted Footpath” along the Esk Valley Line between Ruswarp and Whitby.

I mostly shot that video to kill some time while my broadband connection was acting up and playing silly sods.

LocomotivesUK Blog Has Arrived

I’ve decided to create a blog part of the LocomotivesUK website to make it easier to post new content, and replace the Classifieds Ads section that wasn’t going that well.

Stay Tuned for more as I develop this thing.
