It has plenty of tracks to select from, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Especially as most of the line is single track!

Ah yes; excellent. I'm pleased to see that you jumped out of the way in time. The telephone insulators add to the aged feel of the image but it's a shame about the oil drums and the no entry sign. They spoil the illusion.
Bill Phillips: I could have cloned them out if I had the time...
Very nice. Frank explained the discs on the front... smile
Bill Phillips: I'm glad he knows E because I haven't got a clue!
34053 captured right at the historic sign Bill... great timing and treatment....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Peter....luckily it was going very slowly grin

I have enjoyed seeing all your pictures on Flickr, I take your point about S/C image sizes
Bill Phillips: I thought my eyesight was going. Most of the detail in this picture is lost on here

We children said: Puff puff puff - the loco was the puffpuff! Poop is also a German word (Pups, pupsen =Furz/fart). 'Puff' has in German another meaning, too, I cannot say on this blog.
Bill Phillips: Poop Poop is how Gordon the blue engine sounds in the Thomas the Tank engine books
A proper steam train, not like that one that bloke in America shot.
Bill Phillips: I reckon we produced the most elegant steam locomotives but the American ones are certainly big!

This is better on the eyes than yesterday's Bill. Keep up the good work! Actually, because it need glasses for everything it is a pain trying to get things in focus. To that end I watched a great three part series about the Stuarts. The problem was that they were trying to be clever by having often half of three quarters of the picture blurred. That was causing havoc with me as I was having to check my glasses, clean them etc. why oh why do they have to do that. When I watch television I want a picture that is in focus, if only for my own sanity. I've finished now.
Bill Phillips: My greatest annoyance is the news. Most of the accompanying film seems to considered of legs, or out of focus people. If they can't show things in focus then don't show them at all. They are adding nothing to the report. I too have finished now
I love these b&w shots, Bill. They seem to highlight the bygone era much better than colour.
Bill Phillips: We remember things like this in b&w for some reason Pauline
It is a fine shot whether on here or Flickr and your SVR.collection on Flickr is very enjoyable. I do wonder if the clarity on SC.is dependant on the image resolution it is uploaded at, I don't always upload at maximum on here or Flickr but the latter I believe transposes images up to a higher dpi.
Bill Phillips: I reduce the image size, usually to either 1200 x 800 or in this case 1800 x1000 (it has been cropped) but I keep the resolution at 300x300 dpi Not that that really makes any difference
34053 doen't seem making any effort Bill! Superb image.
Bill Phillips: She was coasting into the station very gently Richard

Wonderful, and not an anorak or bobbly hat in sight smile
Bill Phillips: It was a fairly anorak free day grin
Wonderful, those were the days, they do a great job at this and other railways to keep such heritage alive.
Bill Phillips: Indeed they do Martin. We were lucky that Barry Scrapyard was where so many ended up or most would have been lost
