Some scenes of the real West Coast Main Line, including the scenic location of Old Linslade, just north of the Linslade tunnels, and Leighton Buzzard. These were filmed in October 2004, to assist me in developing the Watford Junction to Rugby route for openBVE. At the time, class 87s were still running.

In this video, you'll see classes 58, 60 and 66 (diesel locos), a class 150 (diesel multiple unit), classes 87, 90 and 92 (25kV AC electric locos), as well as classes 321 and 390 (25kV AC electric multiple units). Line speeds on the fast lines at this location are 90 mph (145 km/h) for non-tilting passenger trains and 125 mph (201 km/h) for tilting trains, and 90 mph on the slow lines.

These shots were filmed on a Mini-DV camcorder, and are only in standard definition, unfortunately.
