Having been asked on a few different threads to show some more of D1047s stock, I thought I'd start up this topic to show some of the locos and stock I've photographed over the years. Some of my earlier attempts are a little crude. (I shall blame the camera) but in recent years, and with a better camera I've been improving somewhat.
Anyway here are some to start the ball rolling.
A general, (slightly out of focus) view of the station at Shenston Road.
Moving on the station holding sidings. Sorry didn't note down the loco numbers.
Cl45 No102 runs through the station whilst Cl47 1674 waits in the goods loop.
Cl22 D6327 waits in the down platform at Shenston Road.
D1028 runs through Shenston Road from the Birmingham Snow Hill direction.
Stroke of luck as D1028 is caught between the hordings from a passing bus.
Well that's a start. I'll add more as time and photography permits.
It's a while since I've posted many photos, so I thought it is time to have a new ongoing thread. The photos were, as usual, all taken by either Dad or I from the early 50s to the present day. The quality will vary depending on the condition of the original slide, the camera and film used. I'll try to avoid ones I've used before.
Some are taken from my sets on flickr, others are ones I am still working on having scanned some years ago. The locations will probably be fairly random.
Other threads of my photos include:
Dad's black and white photos:
This is a newish thread covering France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark etc (or at least it covers bits of them!):
A short thread:
My own black and white photos:
I'll start today with a few from the Lune Gorge etc and Shap.
