This is a brilliant atmospheric picture Brian, I hope you enter it into a competition one day - it's bound to win!
Brian Walbey: We have a competition "On Wheels" in the autumn so I might enter it in that, but if the judge sin't keen on trains then one is on a loser from the start!
Great angle - and great in B&W! I really like this! And I don't necessarily like trains (shhhhhh!!!!)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth. There is a certain man from Blackpool who likes trains, indeed used to work with them I believe, so perhaps you should conjure up a sudden interest in these lovely machines smile

My second train today on SC, Brian, is making me feel like a kid again. I LOVE trains. smile
Brian Walbey: You really must persuade Chris to take you on the West Somerset Railway when next you visit him, it is 20 miles long and runs through some beautiful scenery.

This machine and the way you have snapped it really conveys a sense of power Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, that's one reason for doing the conversion, those aspects come out more.
Nice shot
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much.

I must look in to Australia rail history
Brian Walbey: I am aware of some of your Australian rail history, the men who built your lines must have had great determination bearing in mind that types of landscapes etc,they had to go through.
By far the best so far Brian. Cracking picture
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Bill.
B&W brings back the days
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chantal, and it gives this one a lot more power I think.

Grand engine,grand shot, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frank. I note a certain lady from America also likes this one, to her surprise, I have advised her to find a sudden interest in railways smile

Oh yes; now here b&w suites very much. Lots of drama in the sky and I like the light on the connecting rod and cranks especially.
Brian Walbey: I am pleased with how this has come out after the twiddle, it is much more powerful in B.& W., thanks Alan.
Very dramatic Brian, like it a lot. I've yet to look at the shots, but spent a wet afternoon in the National Railway Museum in York while away, so hopefully something to post.
Brian Walbey: I'll look forward to seeing your shots John, it is several years since i last went there and things are ever changing in side.
A magical perspective Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
Fine B&W conversion, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
A superb shot and treatment, Brian. One of your best.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Graeme.
