Celebrating the Life of Mike McCormac

Please join us to celebrate the life of Mike McCormac starting at St Peter and St Paul Church in Olney on Thursday 13 Feb 2014 at 2pm.

**Updated**

During Pam’s last visit to our home in Polemi, she brought back a bunch of stuff she thought I’d like.  In amongst this lot was my train spotting books from 1967 to about 1970.  And in there, I found three gems.

Harzer Schmalspurbahnen (HSB)

Not too far from the UK is a place where you can find daily steam operations, often with up to eight engines in steam.  Better than that, most of them are massive 2-10-2T tank locos that thrash up a steep track to a mountain top that is very often snow-covered from December to March.  What more could you want?

Rocks by Rail

It’s Monday 18 November, and it’s a photo charter at Rocks by Rail, previously known as Rutland Railway Museum.  We have three stars for the day, two Andrew Barclay 0-4-0STs and visiting Peckett 0-4-0ST ‘Fulstow’.  The weather?  About as grim as it gets – foggy forecast set to improve to drizzle.  I know I say industrial steam always looks great in grim weather, but today is going to test that theory – hard.

Jinxed by a Class 52?

It started on Monday.  It was a nice day, so I slung the camera in the car and went gricing.  It was Jason who asked sometime later why I hadn't gone after the "Western" at Wellingborough.  Good question - I simply didn't know about it.

Great Gathering?

The famous “Great Gathering” of the remaining six LNER Class A4s at the National Railway Museum (NRM) in York isn’t one of those events you can easily ignore. It’s been widely splashed across the press, cost an unknown (but not trivial amount), and attracted controversy from every quarter. The obvious question becomes “Was it worth it?”

130mph blast from the past

I’ve just visited York Railway Museum, and was stopped in my tracks by the most unlikely exhibit.  Aged about 16, I spend some months in Japan.  My father was working there, so my mother and brother went with him, while I stayed in England to do ‘O’ Levels.  Until with the exams out of the way, I was off to Japan for a while.

Foxfield Railway – Jinty 47406 as 47629

LMS Fowler 3F 0-6-0T no. 47406 was visiting the Foxfield Railway from its normal base at the Great Central Railway, so the opportunity was taken to renumber it 47629 to recreate the long lost Jinty that worked at Williamsthorpe Colliery until the late 1960s.

Great Central Railway, 6 October 2013

I'm back in the UK for a short while, so a quick visit to the Great Central Railway Gala was a MUST.  The programme promised loads of action including the visitors Manston and 73129, as well as much of the home fleet.

As I find myself getting sucked more and more into video, at the same time I find myself confronting a question about photography that has nagged away at me for some considerable time.  And the question is should photography be representative or interpretive?
