One of the last major steam gala events of the year fell to the Mid Hants Railway Autumn steam gala this weekend just gone which featured four visiting GWR locomotives (plus an autocoach) alongside 3 of the resident fleet, my full 23 shots are here:

I heartily agree these are a beautiful set of pictures, and those on the link just confirm you have a real eye for a great picture, Kieran. Are you professional or is it simply a hobby you are extremely good at?

As a regular at the Mid Hants I have to say that of all the preserved railways I have visited it is always the one I like the best. Their dining trains are superb, their various events are always enjoyable and they have a wonderful stock of locomotives, carriages and other railway ephemera. The staff are a fantastic bunch and the stations themselves are a tribute to the love the many involved have for this amazing railway. Thank goodness it was able to prove that despite the closure it still has a place in the hearts of so many who work there and (like me) visit.
All change! All change! This train terminates here.

Thanks for the kind comment, just a hobby I've taught myself over the years.

You are a good teacher and a good pupil at the same time. It is a hobby I have dipped in and out of from a young age when I used to stand on Royal Oak station outside Paddington and take pictures of the diesels and HSTs as they came and went. A hobby made easier by the fact that Royal Oak stands opposite the old shed for locomotives, although this is now a car park as the HSTs and other EMUs have made the shed finally redundant.
