Mars 2015: Portland Grove Winter session , Part 1, 2 and 3.
Filmed by Stevie B in December 2014 (Portland Grove location, Spain), MCgomez441 Driver ..
Stevie B came over for a visit back in December and this is his video of some of the continental stock on Portland Grove. Andy.
Another Stevie B production from the 29th December session but this time a good old BR blue workout (except the class 58). Andy.
Here is the last of 3 videos filmed by StevieB of a running session during Febuary 2015 at Portland Grove.
It is initially a BR blue era set up but with some Spanish and French traction sneaking in towards the end.
There is some pre 1977 Western action and a 1980s Large logo class 50 both with sound fitted.
A rattly old DMU leaving the south bay platform and arriving in the northern bay platforms.
Move forward 2 or 3 decades and a First North Western class 150 stops on the northbound slow platform. (I´m still running this one in for you Rob!!)
A flashback to the 80s and an HST giving it some welly leaving southbound.
Fast forward to the 90s and a loadhaul 60 pushes an inspection saloon. down grade.
Back to the early 70s and a Blue Pullman on the high level line whilst a Western comes off the slow lines with a northbound parcels service.
In the blink of an eye you´re now in Spain watching a GM class 333 accellerating a Talgo III set up the bank away from the fiddle yard.
All of a sudden you´re back in Blighty watching a lone Deltic pass a Western on the viaduct (A common occurance in the 70s!!) and some more Hoover and Maybach action.
Then a trip to France to see a Europorte Euro 4000 loco on a container train.
Jump over the border to Spain once again to see a class 321 ALCO on a train of vans (oranges and onions for Paddock Wood I believe).
Finally the Blue Pullmann stops at Portland Grove on a southbound service.
Thanks to StevieB for the video.
Notes of interest.
Some work has been done on the station canopies. Andy.
