Boys Toys 1/3

2009 Retrospective - I had a number of images I took last year that I would have liked to have posted on SC but time didn't allow.  For the time being I am posting a number of these, in no particular order, which I hope you will enjoy.

We took the grandchildren out one November afternoon to a park in nearby Coalville where a club have built a miniature gauge railway track to run their model steam locomotives on.  I caught this local press photographer busy taking a shot of this magnificent model and its very proud owner.

I don't know if you are aware but Ray has opened a new blog on Shutterchance with some excellent photos from his part of the world.  It is well worth a look and is here

That's a huge gauge, Brian, if you ask me. I am always fascinated by these model trains and will always go to see them when I know where they are. This is fun.
Brian Walbey: Our Grandson thought it was fun Ginnie once he'd had a ride on a little train pulled by this lovely little engine.

Indeed Brian - these things are works of art
Brian Walbey: There is so much detail work in these little engines Chris, real miniature versions of their big brothers.
An enthusiasts delight.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Chad.
These trains look great anytime, be it a model or the real thing. Good shot Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Linda.
Looks like you have some competing photographers smile

A nice image and good result despites the harsh sunlight.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Paul. I think the other chap was from the local newspaper, it felt right to include him as part of the story of the picture.
Great capture Brian. This is a piece of art!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.

Brian Walbey: Thanks very much theys.
With all those tools around he is still working on his marvelous project.
Brian Walbey: They seem to need a good toolkit to get them started Mary, once they are though they really speed along.
Nice one Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Michael.

These little things are often works of art; people don't realise the engineering needed, either. A tpical naff "toy train" pose by the photographer. He should have left it to you.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your confidence in me Alan, at least the photographer made the image tell a little story.
Very nice documentary shot, Brian. Naturally you checked what gear the photographer was using!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom, sadly I didn't check out his camera.
Total absorbtion. Cracking little train Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Pamela.
Great boys stuff Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet.
Beats doing the washing up any day.

richard
Brian Walbey: Couldn't agree more Richard.
Its a bit better than the Hornby set i have in the loft.. I want one!! smile
Brian Walbey: So do I Dave, but you also need a lot of room. I like your website by the way, very good.

What a beautiful model...I would be proud!

I like that you included the pro photographer in the shot, too, Brian.
Brian Walbey: At first I thought the pro would spoil my shot then I realised he adds to the interest.
trains.. even small ones... love them
Nice one
Brian Walbey: This was one of three or four there at the time, the other will follow later on.
