No problem Adam, I must admit I nearly missed it as a 185 pulled out between me and the tug.

Looks like the southern end of the station with a very long zoom! Nice pics, any ideas where the unid 222 (last couple of pictures) was going? Looks as if it is in the old Midland Mainline livery, and I'd have liked a pic of it.
Great work with the DMU's, York is always a good station for them.

The following are just constructive criticisms from my point of view and do not reflect on your abilities. :wink:

Could have cropped in much closer to 37688.

150138, good angle, but perhaps step back one and move along the platform a few foot.

158753, lot of empty space before it - I try to focus my pictures on the subject.

ditto for 158758 - although this looks like it was leaving so can be hard to time right.

158121 suffers from being slightly fuzzy and overhead clutter, but you can't do anything about the latter! Nice to see the wheel in the background - although that signal post telephone could have been avoiding by moving along alittle and re-composing the shot. nice shot and well worth entering - thanks!

82230 looks abit lost, too much 'air' around it.

Nice shot of the 221, a close crop on this would be excellent.

Thanks for the tips Dave, the only argument i'll make is that both 185121 and 82230 where already travelling at quite a speed before a snapped em. Apart from that I appreciate the advice from the forums veteran photographer.

In awnser to your question Shaun it first terminated at York then twenty or so minutes later started the return journey to London St Pancras.

Yep, that's much better Karl.
Pity about the SPT (signal post telephone) on the top shot, but crop that out and you lose the interesting wheel - ah well, can't have everything can we?!!
