There are plenty of Class 59s, a number of Class 66s, a few IETs and even Network Rail's Class 950 Track Recording Train.

UK : More Berks and Hants Photos

17-D-2187-t
By early 2017 the electrification of the east end of the Berks and Hants line was beginning to make serious inroads into the number of photographic locations available between Reading and Newbury. These photos show freights, HSTs and DMUs on the line as the poles went up. It was good while it lasted.

There are also new galleries for Class 375, 377, 379 and 387 EMUs, for Class 455 and 456 EMUs and for the predominant operator on the route, Southern.

UK : Didcot - Swindon Photos

16-D-4123_x300
The Didcot - Swindon section of the GWML was one I ignored until it was almost too late. It doesn't have the scenery or the volume of freight traffic that can be found elsewhere but turned out to be a lot more attractive than anticipated, until the poles went up.

UK : Early 1980s Images Added

81-UK-0013_x300
The discovery that time machines are exempt from lockdown restrictions prompted me to go back to the early 1980s, visiting Glasgow in January 1981 and Manchester in January 1982, or maybe I just found some old scans that hadn't yet been published. Either way, it was a completely different world back then, in the days before the entire population was convicted of breathing and put under house arrest.
