Photographs of 91119 - Update

Following our appeal on 18th January for photographs of  91119 in Swallow livery, we are pleased to have received a wide selection of pictures showing the Class 91 in its new colours.
These can be seen on our Focus Flickr site here. A small selection can be seen below and on the original posting here here. Also Julian Davis has sent us an excellent YouTube video of the locomotive at speed.  click here to see this.
Thank you to those that responded to our request for photographs of  91119 and also thanks to all photo contributors who have helped the Focus Flickr site reach 5 million hits which happened over the Christmas holiday period. We are also pleased to report that this Focus Transport site reached the 2.2 million page view mark early in the New Year.
