photoblog image Modern Traction

Modern Traction

Back to diesel trains again.  Whilst waiting at Loughborough to get on a steam hauled excursion to York I took a few shots of modern trains coming through.  The buidling in the background is, or was, Brush Traction, where so many of todays locomotives were built.

I'm trying out a few free borders off a magazine CD this week so please let me know what you think.

This is like a postcard, Brian. And you can't go wrong, IMHO, with free borders, so try them all out! smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, this is quite a good border isn't it, might try it on a picture at my Camera Club, that should stir things up a bit!
Beautiful capture. I really like the border!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I've got about 400 borders in all but I promise not to try them all!
Nice border and a clean train!!
Brian Walbey: THanks Bill, this was in the good old days of Midland Mainline, if there was such a thing!
Looks like a brand new engine and train. richard
Brian Walbey: Yes it's pretty smart isn't it Richard. I'm not really up to date with modern train makes and models, I just liked the look of this one.
beautiful! Love the colors actually and an allure to where the photo was taken.
Brian Walbey: Thanks. Must admit shades of blue are my favourite colours.

Nothing wrong in general with this border, Brian, otehr than the fact that the signal has been almost cut off by it. I think the image needed more space to the left for the border to work on this shot. I take it the factory no longe makes locomotives now (converted in "luxury apartments"?)?
Brian Walbey: On reflection I think you are right about the border on the left Alan. The "Brush", as they call it locally, is still making and servicing locos and you can see them standing out in the backyard area from the nearby road.

These trains never seem quite as photogenic as steam, but it sure does look smart and shiny.

Not so sure about the border, although it's good to play. Somehow it looks too new.
Brian Walbey: Mixed feelings about the border Ellie but I'm glad you like the train. I'll have to try our other borders some time.

I like it this way, almost like it is picture out of a catalogue, love it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, perhaps I ought to try and sell the picture to a train manufacturer!
Nicely done : Bravo !!
Brian Walbey: Thanks, I enjoyed doing this one.
