These are excellent, with the colourful locomotive emerging from the gloom. I like the faint outline of the track and the vignette is effective. I prefer the first shot, as the modern house is less prominent.

All are good, but I prefer the first one with what to me looks like more natural colours.

I prefer the first one, with the blue-ish ambient light making a good color combination with the yellow lights.

Thank you Pieter,
Being there, taking that picture was beyond my wildest dreams.


the 844 photo was to emphasize the enormous size of the wheels on it. Didn't quite work.

Well, I have a pretty good idea about the size of the wheels now
The first one is a very nice shot indeed.

I love these railway photos. I wish we had a museum with steam engines nearby, but so it's great to relive the era of steam with these very fine photographs.
