Wow, you are dead lucky to get in there - never seen shots inside before. Great stuff. I'd give my right arm to have a look inside :)
The 66s are stored there as they are off lease.

It's been a while since I posted some pics, just had a week off and managed to get some "photting" in (not sure if I like the phrase :? ) Here's some stuff from the last couple of weks. I've tried to include some variety in locations. There are more pics from September HERE

For those of us who stride for perfectly level, perfectly straight track with mirror level ballast, this photo is surely an eye opener.

A good selection of photos, lots of scenery. I like the control of focus - to highlight the subject. The FGW HSTs look great with the exhaust ripple! Thank you for posting.

I haven't posted recently due to the terrible weather, however today was sunny and there was something worth going to have a look at. here are my first shots of the new Class 70's. I'll get some better shots when I remember to take my walking boots with me. They are all from the same spot but I've included 5 as they may be of interest.......

Some fantastic railway shots there. I cant help but wonder though, do you work on the railways or do you sometimes do a spot of trespassing? because some of your shots seem as though they are inside where any fences should be.

Hi SB, Ithink the two shots you are referring too are below? I don't work on the railway and don't really trespass. When I say don't really, there is a technical infringement at Gatcombe. Here you have steps leading to a stile (Typical of most foot crossings) on the other side of the track is another stile which lead to footsteps down to the river. It looks for all the world like a normal foot crossing and it was only after I'd been crossing for a few years (though the first was in the late 1980's) that I noticed a very small sign that says "This is not a public right of way". I can only assume that it is for the chaps that used to fish the Severn with baskets, but that has long since died out. On the other hand there are a few foot crossings that cross the line diagonally in Gloucestershire. My favourite has one stile 100m up the line from the other, allowing you to walk by the line at a safe distance.

As for the two shots below, both were taken from the platform at opposite ends of Ashchurch station. Virtually everything else on this page (page 10) was taken from a bridge. Telephoto lens help to isolate the subject too.
