The Jacobite - October 2012 [19:59]
Footage from the last week of the 2012 season of 'The Jacobite' operated by West Coast Railways and featuring LNER class K1, no.62005. Photographers who travelled to Scotland for the final week were rewarded with some stunning lighting and cold, still conditions for most of the week which enhanced the beautiful autumnal colours. My video includes some scenes at Fort William followed by the following locations on the journey to Mallaig; Lochy Viaduct Corpach Loch Eil Glenfinnan Viaduct and four of the Glenfinnan departures Polnish Chapel Loch non Uamh Viaduct Between Beasdale no.2 and 3 Tunnels Beasdale Station Morar River Viaduct Approaching Morar and Morar Station On the return from Mallaig the K1 is seen at Larichmore Viaduct Loch Dubh Climbing away from the shores of Loch Eilt Approaching Glenfinnan Summit and finally crossing the Banavie Swing Bridge. Thanks to West Coast Railways and members of NELPG who make it all possible.
Chasing 'The Jacobite' [18:54]
After a period of 8 years and some badgering from a certain person (you know who you are!), I returned for a week of support crewing duties on West Coast Railways 'Jacobite' service from Fort William to Mallaig and return with LMS Black 5 44871. The last time I was up in Scotland, I didn't manage to have a day filming the train due to the weather conditions so I decided on a bright, reasonable morning to have a day chasing. The first couple of shots, taken at Corpach and Glenfinnan Station, the weather was still dry, a bit overcast but certainly decent for Fort William weather and a good days filming but on arrival at my next filming position, just after Glenfinnan, the wet weather had set in and stayed for the remainder of the day. However this didn't deter me and with my umbrella, I managed to get a few shots in. Thanks for watching, please keep an eye out for my other films taken during the week which will appear in the coming days. Most importantly of all, thanks go to the other guys that were on duty during the week, Rob Hawkins, Matt Earnshaw, Michael Keenan and Driver Alex MacDonald.
