Welcome to first ever vlog about Coopers Junction model railway. Also showing off the Hornby Loco R3903 ScotRail, Class 43 HST, Power Cars 43021 and 43132 ‘A New Era’ which has been fitted with DCC Sound.
Today Mark T and myself went to Elton and Orston railway station, which is the least used station in Nottinghamshire. To watch the one of the Summer Saturday HST specials to Skegness.
Here are my favourite photos from December 2019… Please do give the photos a comment!

View from the very last northbound Highland Chieftain (LNER) service crossing the Forth Rail Bridge.
So looking forward to last ever trip on a HST on the ECML. Getting the train from Grantham up to York (which I believe, will be a InterCity 225), then boarding the Highland Chieftain service, which will be operated by diesel-powered InterCity 125 High Speed Train for the very last time! Going all the way up to Inverness.
This will be my third time using the Highland Chieftain service. Really, really looking forward to it!
Once up in Inverness, hoping to do the Far North Line, for the very first time!
Do really, love getting trains from Stirling railway station! Great place to see InterCity 125s and the new Class 385 trains.
