    A lovely set of images. I'm still trying to work out why, but this one just stopped me in my tracks. I love it. I think it's the light on those carriages..

    It just takes me back to my carefree childhood, where we used to watch everbody else working without a care in the midday sun. Cheers Donald.

    Great set Steve,

    I like them all, possibly the breakdown crane best though, not just for the crane, there's such a typical platform scene

    Good work,

    They are my favourites Kristianna, and #4 could have been better if it wasn't for the Station Master screaming 'get off the line', even though I wasn't on the same line and was using effectively a 300mm lens.

    Hi Steve, I was surprised at how wavy and uneven the tracks appear. Are they really that far out of alignment? If so, I hope that don't run the trains any faster than dead-slow!

    They only run at just above running pace Frank; never got on one though because it costs 15 for about a mile, although you can keep catching them. Suppose the line they use is about 3 miles long but continues to the main network.

    Must cost a lot to run this place

    Thanks, Steve. Yes, steam locomotives are extreamly expensive to maintain.

    These wonderful scenes have captured what it was like to be around in the good old days of steam power, takes me back to my childhood. Lovely work!
