Bitta Pill

Are we allowing Steam Trains ?
I couldn't resist sharing this one.......I was up early to get down to Liskeard for a photo of the returning railtour featuring 6233 Duchess of Sutherland. My plan was to fly my drone over Moorswater viaduct for an aerial shot. I arrived with time to spare and launched Viola May 2 for a recci. The shot was on and I bagged a picture of a castle set. Returning to base for a battery change still with 30 mins in hand. Landed , changed battery only for the Duchess to chuff by....noooooo.
The booked 30min recess in Withy loop did not take place and she was 28 early, bowled ! Doh !.
I legged it up to the RAB and bagged a cheesy land camera shot before heading up to Bittaford for another bite of the cherry. This time the planned lay over at Plymouth was not cut out nor short and she passed me bang on time looking magnificent.
