A Dirty Diesel for @Montfrooij as we know his love of trains.   



This one was labeled Balfour Beatty and google tells me that its job is to check track geomentry.





Taken with the Mini 3 Pro.

I think you might be right,  but how did you know that much detail.

Thanks DT.   I just saw another weird diesel.  Single carriage but it was full of seating.  Not sure where they hid the engine.

I got a shot on the way back,  its not what I thought it was, it was labeled inspection train so I think the windows might be fake,  I'll get a better look when I download the SD card.

Ahh, a bit of trickery if that is the case.  Maybe it was done in a manner similar to the below local bus.

Started nice this morning here,  although sunset wasnt much to write about,  then this afternoon we've had some rain and wind.     

You've been gone all; day,  must have been a good lunch.

A lie-in this morning, then a short journey to meet friends at a restaurant for leisurely lunch.  Home for a nap
Amazing where the time goes

Seems hard to believe at the moment, but we're supposed to get full sun tomorrow.
I've prepared a day out mixing droning and Geocaching, with picnic. In case the forecast is right.

Funny.  That’s the forecast here too.    I’m not sure yet the plans.   I’m torn between the 15 mile loop or just some sunrise stuff.

The rivers are lively and the Archimdes screw is turning again.  We've had a lovely day out - full sunshine.
But high winds kept the drones grounded - apart from a one-minute flight of the Mini3 which was a wild ride and difficult landing. No damage incurred.

Full sun shine here too,   SHMBO'd should have swapped her days off to make use of it.  Fingers crossed Monday will be good and we can also make a trip.


Did you by bus?
