Default Trip Report England style

Yesterday i set left my houe in the suberbs of Doncaster to catch a train into city centre. After a 10 minute walk to Kirk Sandall station I saw the slow line was clear so this indicate a freight was coming were GM 66564 paased on a coal train at 0900 http://www.ajp.fotopic.net/p25822221.html All my photos arent as bad as that
I arrived at Doncaster for 9:30 and a class 37 in the west yard, I was chuffed as I love these and are very rare now
http://www.ajp.fotopic.net/p25822238.html

I then got my but to platform 3 for some shots. A 08 came into the station for some reason and went back http://www.ajp.fotopic.net/p25822225.html

Then the Network Test train AKA the Flying banana came http://www.ajp.fotopic.net/p25822224.html

I was freezing! And spits and spots of light snow kept on falling but was mainly cloudy

66228 then passed Light Engine after working containers to wakefield http://www.ajp.fotopic.net/p25822227.html
67015 shortly passed after that Light engine again http://www.ajp.fotopic.net/p25822234.html

Getting bored and decided to get the 1246 back but before I went I captred 66533 running two hours on containers from Leeds. http://www.ajp.fotopic.net/p25822236.html

My first trip report on this site and possibly the first from UK (if not let me no)

Yes and No. In London no chance! Doncaster as always been popular with railfans up to 40-60 on a sunny afternoon! I dont seem to have a problem there. Ive had problems up in Edinburgh and Glasgow as well. But most are ok. Being 16 most police are more glad im and other railfans doing that than taking drugs, fighting,turf wars etc. But London is a definatly no especally after 7/7
