Lines in the Landscape


Recommended Posts

An awesome looking 31128 Charybdis heads the 1Z29 Ashton In Makerfield to Crewe Branch Line Society special, The Sunday Yicker 2021-03-14_08-16-50.jpg.79db6135246e7eee5175c4d9e231a466.jpgover Carr Mill Viaduct in St Helens.  West Coast Railway Company 37668 was on the rear.  Note the timely water sport action causing some serious ripples!

Three lines in this landscape, and a train on the furthest.

I'm still the right side of all the fences, looking coastbound across the Medway viaduct which also carries HS1 over the line between Rochester-Sole Street in the foreground, and Strood-Cuxton in the background. And sheepy-goat things which had horns that they turned away when I took the photo.

Pity it was a bit gloomy that day

Newhaven's days as a major cross-channel port are well gone, but there are still up-to three sailings each way each day. The rail service to the Harbour station is now rush-hours only. The ferry port is served by the Town station. The East Coastway services with 313s from Brighton & Lewes replace the boat trains from Victoria.

A couple of images on a very dull day today at Welland Viaduct, Harringworth, Northants.

 

1st, spot the Corby - Margam steel train headed by 66 194:

and then the slightly more obvious southbound Hope to Dagenham Down Yard headed by 66 610.

Beautiful building, awful light on a very cold day!

A landscape that will change tomorrow morning.

The 2013 picture catches Rugeley PS 'backfiring' on a restart after a power cut.

No trains in these photos i'm afraid but they don't come along that often and i had other things to be getting on with!

Who said the West Highland Line had no straight sections?

Elevated view of WHL heading towards Rannoch Station (think that's possibly the station on the far left of the photo)

Potentially a long time to wait for a train if you’re up a remote mountain!
