My Railway Photography

Postby ErlestokeManor7812 » Fri Feb 07, 2020 7:32 pm

Evening all

I'm going to share my photography through my flickr account.

First up, Churnet Valley Railway's Super Power Take 2 event, featuring three USATC S160s running together for the first time in the UK since the war.

Now moved onto the Dartmouth Steam Railway, 2253 Omaha accelerates through Cheddleton with the first train of the day.

2253 Omaha departs Froghall, whistling for the crossing in the old Copperworks

Resident sisters 6046 and 5197 head along the Caldon Canal soon after passing through Consall.

The final train of the day climbs the Ipstones branch with the three S160s joining forces, the train weight was increased some what with two Class 33s attached to the back.

Hope you enjoy!

So now someone has suggested a way of posting photos instead of flickr links, I thought I would share some more.
Here are some from my trip to the Evesham Vale Light Railway back in January, the weather was much the same as today, just more of a chill. The loco in use for the day was Monty, an Exmoor Steam Railway design. Here are my photos from the visit:

The railway is well worth a little visit, especially if you are using the shopping centre nearby.

More to come from other trips out!

Some more photos from recent trips out, this time a couple of days during the Severn Valley Railways Falling Sands Closure running, trains were due to be running between Bewdley and Bridgnorth from the end of December until the beginning of April due to the closure of Falling Sands Viaduct in Kidderminster for major repairs, hopefully it won't be long before trains are running on the whole line again soon once all this virus stuff has cleared and things get back to normal.....anyway here are my photos.
