Foxfield Railway

I've just added some pictures to the website dating from the last days of 2004 taken at a Richard Newton photo charter at the Foxfield Railway.

Didcot Railway Centre

Just added some pictures taken on 20th February 2004 at a night shoot at Didcot Railway Centre. 

Now despite its fanaticism for all things copper-capped, its not actually a bad place at all.  In fact, its pretty damn good.

I’ve been following the ‘Spawn of the Devil’ style digital debate in Steam Railway, and think it’s a lot of arrant nonsense.

It doesn’t matter what camera you use, provided you can use it. Your eyes and your feelings come first, the camera is only a recording tool.

China Gricers January 2008

The day-to-day story of my January 2008 trip to China with Roger and Ken, organised by Bernd Seiler.  An epic of steam and cold!

Simon's snorkel

I always enjoy opening my e-mail – and this morning was right up there.

An e-mail from Baggy with a real treasure of an attachment. The image is called ‘Simon’s Snorkel’ which of course clears up any confusion about what Simon might actually be doing.

Neither John nor I would want to mislead anybody.

A C&PRR Charter - a study in mono

Almost on home ground this time, a charter at the Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway with GWR 57xx 0-6-0PT 57xx no. 9682 (masquerading as 9789).

Got there for the 8am start – good breakfast and then a lot of hanging about.  It wasn’t until about 10.15am that we got the first run at Thame Junction.

On short winter’s days it just isn’t good enough to lose two and a quarter hours doing what should have been done for the 8am start.

If railways want to keep pushing up the prices of charters, so they need to be concious of the value they’re delivering.

A really long day. Out at 4.30am, to Ken's house at 6.30am to pick him and Simon up, fight through the West Yorkshire traffic to arrive at Ingrow at 8.30am, half an hour late.

Needn't have worried, no sign of the loco and time for a bacon sarnie and tea. Eventually the loco arrived - but no train. So off to Keighley to pick up some wagons.

More hanging around - first shot of the day at 10.08am. Could have had another hour and a half in bed...

Did a Russ Hillier Charter at the GCR on 19 October with GWR 56xx 0-6-2T no. 5643. A really good session and a lot of fun.

The early morning light was spot on - a cloudless blue sky combined with cold and damp conditions brought out the best of the steam.

North Norfolk Railway

Remind me never to do another ‘before and after’ charter, ever again!

Before and after? Before and after the service trains. Start early – get a few hours in before the normal service starts – and then get a few more in after they’ve finished.

And that was the format for today.

Snibston Colliery

Another day, another charter. This time it's Snibston Colliery, our victim is the fetchingly blue Wimblebury, and of course it's raining.

Yep - it's June - height of the British summer - and it's peeing down and blowing half a gale.

We're hanging around taking the mickey out of each other, watching the sun put in fleeting glimpses as the stock continues to be shunted.
