March 27th 2010

I joined a happy band of train enthusiasts including a number of birders in the car park of Myson House, Rugby over looking Rugby Station this morning and we were treated to fantastic views as 60019 Bittern approached.
She was not scheduled to stop at Rugby so there was great excitement amongst the crowds as she slowed and then pulled up in front of us to allow one of the footplate staff to phone the signal box before she blasted us with her whistle which thrilled the old un’s present but scared the poo out of the young un’s who had never heard such a beautiful racket before. She pulled away majestically to be enjoyed by more birders and bloggers further up the line. A Buzzard and 2 Raven flew over but they took a back seat for a change.
