Virgin Voyager between Llanfairfechan and Penmaenmawr on the Holyhead to Crewe line. Boring train, but I liked the contrasting bright colours.

This time, as an exception, some old pictures I took in 1990 with my Olympus OM2n, probably on Kodak EliteChrome 200 and the slides were scanned with my Minolta Dimage Scan Dual III.

The pictures were taken in the Anten railway station of the Swedish "Anten - Gräfsnäs - Järnväg" = Anten - Gräfsnäs - Railroad (järn = iron, väg = road).
The first one shows an old Motorcoach and and even older steam locomotive:



second the arrival of a train with old wooden coaches, drawn by a steam locomotive:



and finally a girl engine driver of this railraod:

This one was dumb luck. I was using a tripod to shoot a christmas display. The lights of a passing car gave the streaks at the wheels that made the train look like it was moving. And the lights stopped in the perfect place!

This is a real train that of course is now out of service. It is part of a large Christmas display in Clemmons, North Carolina, USA.

A massive project ahead. One of many locomotives that were tipped over the foreshore to act as protection from the sea.

Contrast between 19th century wrought ironwork and 21st century computer technology at York station. NER refers to the North Eastern Railway, who built the station and had its headquarters in the city. The NER became part of the LNER in 1923 but its legacy lives on.



The "charter service" is the one that will take me home, here it is:



Here's the newly re-streamlined 6229 Duchess of Hamilton at the National Railway Museum, York with an aspiring model. Streamlining was in vogue when this locomotive was built in the 1930s but ease of maintenance was later seen as more important so the casing was removed.



Contrasting styles, nationality and traction at the museum.
