A Railfreight 31 having been hurriedly pinched from its allotted train heads through on the way to Exeter.

Followed a little while later by the 33 dragging the failed class 31 and the late running freight to Riverside.

Thanks John.
Yes the weather isn’t great is it? The railway is very much set in summer but it’s nice to get a gloomy look to it with a bit of phone trickery…

Not that pleased with the middle picture but it’s part of the story. This was the other angle I tried.

Top picture of the 33 is one of the best pictures I've seen in ages! :D

Running nearly an hour late 31 418 is captured deputising for the booked class 47 -doing its best to keep time on the Newcastle - Poole service just after exiting Catesby tunnel!

I just showed this to my other half and she said “Is that real or a model..?”

Thanks for the compliments! It certainly helps having a layout that gives you that depth of field for photos and you have also achieved that with your class 33 pic! I love the wagon on the hill you can almost hear the driver grappling with the gears to navigate it!

Thought I'd try out a few night time shots and some taken at dusk.

Photo 2 : Similar picture, but during dusk.

Apologies for the lack of a backscene either side of the layout around Potterton Station, but it is normally viewed from both sides.
