Monochrome Mania - Part 1 #13

Bath Cutting

In the early 70's we met a couple from Bath and went down there for the weekend to stay with them. Me being a train person I couldn't avoid taking this shot as we walked along near the railway, and I feel I was lucky to have the young lad there to put some human interest in the picture.

I'm not a diesel person so i will leave it to others to inform us what type of locomotive is pulling the train.

No idea Brian, but it looks a bit neglected. You are right about the lad, he adds the finishing touch
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, a bit near to Chris' doorstep, perhaps he will know what the loco is.
This is Sydney gardens where the train runs through the park. Tiff will like this one.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, I hope Chris likes it and tells me what the loco is.

Good image
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment vintage.
Very nice composition Brian. I like the perspective!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, they say the three quarter angle shot is the ideal for train pictures apparently.
I always knew you were hankering after taking 'people' shots Brian. They sometimes call it 'street photography' ... but what do I know. ;-) ;-)

Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I will try and have a slightly more serious go at people shots this year if the chance comes along.

Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Sarina.

Oh look.. a train running.. AND no snow on the track! See.. they can run trains if they can be bothered! I'm not a diesel fan either, but Tracy's explanation seems spot on to me. smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Alan, no excuse today for no trains, it's lovely in Leicestershire.
It's a class 50 diesel Brian, taken before 1980 because there is no front headlight. I was at thisexact spot today coming back from shopping in Bath - and indeed taking some picture for Shutterchance
Brian Walbey: Thanks for the info and your comment Chris, I bet the young boys still gather here to watch trains go by and the big boys as well probably.

l prefer the old diesel trains myself they just have so much more sentiment attached, l like the boy and the dirty windscreen they just flesh the shot out.

Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Zed, I must admit to being a steam fan myself.
Good shot, but I find it hard to enthuse about diesels.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ian, yes, I'm not a great diesel fan either.
