Back in the Real World

Not a lot happening in the model world of Wychminster so, instead, something from a real train instead.

I’ve made a few attempts to get images inside Greet tunnel on the GWSR of which this is one of the more successful. I still need to sort out the shutter speed which is too low but the cameras at maximum ISO so not sure what the next step will be. Just by chance the I got a reflection of the fire through the cab window onto the smoke above.

Engine is GWR 2-6-2T, 5542

The Real Thing


For a change, and I promise not to make a habit of it, the real thing rather than a model, taken this morning on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway at Toddington when I was out-and-about getting a sniff of real steam.
