Très jolie perspective.
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Martine
On the odd occasions we travel by train I do like to get a good look at the various types of trains and locos.
Bill Phillips: It is hard to get excited by these units that are just a carriage with a window in the front

Really? What with no proper steam locos providing the interest? That would be seriously anoraky.
Bill Phillips: I think it is the photographic possibilities of working railways...well I use working in the broadest sense

SUPER BONUS COMMENT

Train spotters are also known as railfans. Their hobby involves collecting information on the trains that pass through at the station. They collect information on a particular type of train or rail company and its timings, all the things pertaining to the train such as the tickets, brand, other things associated with it are collected by the trainspotter. They pretty much sit at the station and hang out there to get the information. They know everything about the trains of their interest and also share information on the dispatches of the train. They have their own trainspotter jargon that they all are familiar with while exchanging information. But due to the current security issues in most of the countries it has become a little harder to pursue this hobby. While some collect information on the history of the train such as its unique style, their names which usually connected with the history of the rail department. A lot of them are interested in the steam engines while some collect information on electric or diesel or electric trains. The subject of trains is vast and varied so trainspotters mostly choose one area of interest and pursue it.
Bill Phillips: Some of them don't seem too good at personal hygiene
