Excellent photos - the curved arch bridge makes a wonderful frame. B&W seems to suit some shots more than others - being entirely unartistic I have no idea why! Thank you.

Hi,
After having a rather long break away from railways though a spell of poor health. I finally managed a short visit to the Gloucester and Warwickshire Railway for their Festival of Steam gala. The theme was Swindon Built. I could only manage a few hours or so and I didn't manage to go to many locations but I did get a few images which I hope you will enjoy!

I have also been playing around with some old images again. Turning them to BnW and adding a soft focus effect to others. These collections can be viewed by going to the Recent Additions page of my website or following this link.............

Hope you enjoy the results...... Regards to all............Rick

As a GWSR volunteer who couldn't make it to the gala those pictures were just the ticket - superb thanks!

You are very welcome. I'm glad you enjoyed the snaps! I just wish I could have spent a bit more time there and visited a few stations to get a bit closer to the action by having a ride down the line. But as Im still feeling a bit delicate at the moment I thought it best to not stretch myself to much.
I do hope to go back soon and have a ride behind P&O rather than just take photos.

Regards..........Rick

I'm looking forward to my first turn behind her, although I did manage to get on the launch train with 12 coaches which was brilliant!

Hi,
Ive added a couple of photo galleries to my website of Galatea over the last couple of days. One Light loco on its way down from Carnforth taken at Cathiron on the WCML. The other was during its tour on the Cotswold Venturer which were taken between Evesham and Pershore in Worcestershire where the hours waiting between runs was filled by a spot of maggot dangling on the River Avon.
