Half-term trains - short video


Trevor Garnham uploaded this recent video for all to enjoy.

"Hi everyone. Here is a short video of ISAAC with carriage No. 17 on half-term duties. Filmed on Saturday 21st February 2015. As I was using my SLR camera quality is not as good as when I use the usual video camera. Still a nice bit of history of a one-coach train on the L& BR."
