    You have a nice spot there Chris, do you get many steams coming through?

    Certainly do. Its a heritage line so trains are running up and down every weekend and most weekdays throughout the summer months.

    It's where the Flying Scotsman was restored recently.

    Great location and video. I'm only down the road so I may have to venture there myself!

    I am keen on taking similar shots down in the South at the Bluebell Railway. They do however like you to keep the 50M distance as per CAA rules for understandable safety reasons. So going over the top of the carriages even keeping 50 M away I am a bit hesitant on doing.

    My favourite part is at 3:23 flying through the steam. Imagine the coverage with 2 or 3 Phantoms.......;)

    I did. I'm a member of the railway so not a problem.

    Yes. This loco has a nick name of the volcano for that very reason.

    What drone and software were you using to fly this? Really nice pans during flight.

    Just DJI Go on a p3a. Not quite a slick as I wanted on the pan really because the new firmware seems a little sharper so I need to adjust the expo's to my preferred feel. It's only my 5th or 6th flight in total so still getting a feel for the thing.
