Westcoast,

sigma 10-20 does produce some impressive images.

Glad you liked it. That engine is probably the most famous one in Canada.

Just a little bit! Actually looks like Civil War/Golden Spike Vintage but was built in 1886 by/for the Canadian Pacific RR and pulled the first transcontinental train into Vancouver, according to information that I read online.

Almost a postcard or a Christmas card, Paul. Very nice.

Russell,

Sorry no name GWR 5542. The restoration work is amazing!

No expert in trains, but did find it very nostalgic! Met a real ehthusiast there though - "Debbie", .. who had been encouraged to get a Sony by a bunch of dyxumers... and had she taken that advice seriously!

GWR 5542 in reverse

A700 Sigma 30mm/f2.2/(1/250)/ISO: 200

GWR 5542 Guages

A700 Sigma 30mm/f2.2/(1/40)/ISO: 200

GWR 5542 pulls out..

A700 Sigma 30mm/f2.2/(1/8000)/ISO: 200

Apologies for not providing more information in the first place!

Ian. Do you know what engine this is? I don't recognise it at all.

Edit: Sorry I think I've found it. Is it the beavertail observation carriage? I was convinced it was a loco but looking at it again it looks like it's being coupled to a loco. Possibly Mayflower?

In 2012 after months of tests I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. I was 46 and suddenly life made sense. I don't mean to offend with my comments so please tell me if I do so I can put it right.

BTW, Russellbags... just interested what part of Bristol you are at? I studied at UWE, and spent 3 years first in Westbury-on-Trym/Southmead and last year in Clifton/Redlands area.

Steve. It's a small world isn't it. I live on the south side of the city in a place called Bishopsworth. It's not well known and a lot of people mix it up with Bishopston. If you drive through Bristol on the way to Bristol airport it's pretty much the last place you go through before hitting the country and about as far from UWE as you can get. I'm quite lucky really as I have all the benefits of the city but am within 5 minutes walk of the country and the Mendip hills.

Clifton is a gorgeous place with a lot of photo opportunities as I'm sure you know and of course it's the home of Brunel's amazing suspension bridge. I spend quite a bit of time on Durdham Downs which as you lived in Clifton you've probably come across. Sadly I'm yet to take a decent photo of the bridge. It's my photo nemesis.

Southmead isn't so special. It has a bit of a reputation locally but is surrounded by lovely places. Westbury-on-Trym being one of them. My first job was in Westbury and I love the place. It's like a little country village.
