East Somerset Railway

  1. I am no expert in photographing railway engines (in the mechanical field motor sport is more my thing) but here are a few shots taken on the East Somerset Railway, a preserved steam railway in the UK.

    Dave...I don't know anything about old trains, but I did enjoy your captures. Very nice job...

    For you I should have thought the GWR (Gloucestershire and Worcestershire Railway - not the original God's Wonderful Railway of course) would be the one :lol:

    Thanks for the memories - I grew up in London at Clapham Junction and watching the steam trains fly through was one of the great excitements available. These grand old machines are wonderful.
  7. Dave,

    Well done! I love trains of all kinds (it's a nice way to get back in touch with one's inner child, ain't it? :)). I think you've done very well here. My favorite is the last one with the steam coming out, and the old depot atmosphere, created by the train on the next track and the shack in the background... Have you considered converting to B&W, with some added film grain effect, just for nostalgia sake? 8) :lol: Let me know if you'd like to see what I am talking about.
