last look at shillingstone (for now)
Four more shots from Shillingstone (taken 18.2.09).
The view from the platforms across the valley are fantastic - though don't look great in the last shot thanks to the weather, which elsewhere en route actually heightened the atmosphere!
I suspect it won't be too long before the Shillingstone diesel ventures back on to the main line, echoing Midsomer Norton's achievement about 4 years back, which I missed! It will be a lot longer before the 9F does the same, but after last week's visit I no onger have any doubts that it will.
This is the last bit of active S&D on this trip, though surprisingly not the last bit of track still in place. We'll be heading southwards tomorrow ...
