This is a difficult one, unless you are into trains, it will be interesting to see whats entered.

I haven't got anything any where near good enough to go into this comp.
I like steam trains, but have very little opportunity to photograph any.
I think I will have to give this comp a miss.

I have got a picture of a very old tram, but it is from Adelaide in South Australia.......it certainly would come under British Railways heading.

Re: Photo Competition 44

as long as you've taken the picture yourself and not googled it i dont think it matters does it?

because the pictures in the gallery HAVE to be ones you have taken yourself and not ones that have been taken from google, say postcards etc

Did you see the photo of the week Len in the Observer. Was a bit confused as it is on a main line ??

The gentleman who took this steam engine "The Cotton Mill Express" going past Accy Cemetery says goes through regularly. Did he mean present day then ?
