I, and I'm sure many others, really enjoying viewing your efforts.
Thanks, I doubt I will be posting images everyday, 2 years of going out and trying to find something to photograph has been a tough challenge and to be honest I could do with the break from it.

Re: Today in pictures

My first venture out with the camera in a few days...

Black Five 45212 leaving Ramsbottom this evening - although the timetable said this was supposed to be a diesel train...

Re: Today in pictures

I set out with good intentions of some serious photography in Todmorden Park. After five minutes I was frozen stiff so after grabbing a couple of quick shots I scarpered.

Re: Today in pictures

It's been a while since I've been out with the camera, 731 consecutive days taking photo's sorta exhausts your local area... I spotted these pink peeling shutters on Victoria Street, Accrington, I liked the way it looked almost like some sort of sci-fi writing...

Re: Today in pictures

Thanks, it's surprising how often the most mundane of objects that would normally just be overlooked or walked past unnoticed provide an interesting image.

Re: Today in pictures

Not one from today, but a few years ago and one of the very few times I've managed to capture an insect in flight.

20th Jan 2018 - Steam Train in the Snow

Black Five 45212 at Townsend Fold near Rawtenstall

I had hoped to catch the steam train arriving here from the opposite direction, but as you can see from the second image, it arrived tender first...

Re: Today in pictures

I’ve been to the East Lancs plenty of times and remember a train with a loco at either end.
Both locos with front end to the train.
How hard would it have been to switch them so they whichever way they travelled it would be boiler first.

Re: Today in pictures

The Black Five, in the photo's I took, is currently on loan from the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway (I think). I'd guess it's pretty difficult these days as very few places have turntables to change the direction of the engine. Normally steam trains from Bury to Rawtenstall come Engine first and tender first from Rawtenstall.

As most of these heritage railways have limited track and no loops, I'd say very hard to have the engine always facing front. Plus a whole lot of regulations to have steam trains running on mainlines....

I'm still glad they do have them running, I was 6 years old when the last regular steam trains ran in 1968...

Re: Today in pictures

But one at each end boiler to train seemed crazy. There are pleanty of places on the line to swop them end for end and have them tender to train at each end. It made it a bad day for photographs.
