    Out this afternoon and this came chugging along some nearby tracks.

    At the same time as this. Talk about spoiling a shot.

    The clone work needed for this one is out of my league.

    Good luck! Nice shots of the FS. Is it just me or is it not as dramatic now she burns smokeless coal. I do love a big filthy smoke stack.

    The first is best, and the lack of power wires is the reason. Still, it's great that you guys have the opportunity to shoot a classic.

    Thanks, Never seen it before except in pictures and shooting trains has never been a particular passion of mine. I might not have captured it in the most dramatic way as these were pretty much grab shots and I wasn't particularly close.
    Thanks Roger the first is the same shot as the second with a good bit of pp, It was some good luck though we happened to be there at the time as it was definitely worth seeing and shooting.:)

    In that case, good work! I wouldn't have thought until you mentioned it.

    That doesn't spoil the shot too much, where we were at Needham Market yesterday morning a diesel electric left the station just in time to block our close up view.

    It couldn't have timed it much worse for me.
    Here's the scotsman passing through the station behind the obstruction blocked 2.jpg

    Fortunately I managed some slightly better shots on the outbound route. Hopefully I'll be able to make something of them.

    Thanks guys, one of the more involved clone jobs I have undertaken.:)
    Sounds exactly like what happened to us. The diesel electric slowed down to allow people further down the line on the other side of the tracks to get a view but doing so ruined any chance of an unobstructed shot from our side.

    I did manage this one as well but the sky was really blown so I thought it would work as a mono.

    I like that. Your choice of mono was spot on.

    Yes mono definitely works well. I'll have to remember to try that with my efforts :)

    You did well! gutted about the other shots and the people who waited to see it then missed it that must be so frustrating.

    Thanks, in retrospect although the diesel got in my way a bit it could have been much worse and I wasn't even waiting to see it just out on a wander. After a fair bit more cloning I have managed to squeak another out, maybe.
    The plant in the foreground is bugging me a bit as are some of the tree line where I removed the cables but its not too bad.

    Well caught. Looks like the engine has had a ding just above the rearmost large wheel, though I guess it's a design feature...

    Thanks Pete, didn't notice the dink till you pointed it out. Probably just there to aid aerodynamics...;)

    Good spur of the moment capture and PP. My memory of the FS is in green livery which in my opinion is more photogenic.
