DMU Photography - Away from the Three-Quarter View

Recommended Posts

Here's another from just a couple of miles West along the line at the bridge, formerly the site of Clarbeston Crossing (we always knew it as Deep Ford Bridge when we crossed it on the school bus).  Behind the cameraman is the original crossing keeper's cottage, which ceased to guard the crossing after about 1906.




By this date (1989 I think, will have to check), Metro-Cammells were disappearing and being replaced by the Derby Cl.108s, some of which still had Manchester route maps for months afterwards.

That’s a lovely photo’, which shows how majestic the bleakness and grimness of the area is. To model it would require a huge room, but I hope one day perhaps someone might do just that.

A completely different DMU view this time (and not really "In the Landscape").  


This is Chester in 1991 I think, the vehicles in the background were a line of withdrawn stock that stood there for months.  By this time I was a student in Liverpool and did a few North West Day Rangers on Saturdays.

Look closely there is a 158 in the picture



Another cambrian one



And an ‘urban landscape’ taken from Severn Jn signal box


I think it's difficult to take a poor shot of Barmouth Bridge, but your second one is particularly excellent.

A photographer after my own heart; if you can read the number, you're too close!


<Edited to add> Here's a another shot from the same day on the Fife Coast Path:
