Cheers!

I was a bit worried the post would be a little long-winded. Glad you enjoyed it.

Re: Off the Rails - Train Stuff

How about a few pics of steam at night? Here is a photo of D3 639 being stabled at Maldon loco depot, after running a friend's wedding charter. The fire has just been dumped, and the glowing coals can be seen underneath. The loco will soon pull forward over the pit to be parked up for the night. 24/...

Re: Off the Rails - Train Stuff

Having a bit of trouble making the post. Is there a word limit of something for this forum? I keep getting an error notification.

Re: Off the Rails - Train Stuff

Excellent - I had to search to confirm Dolphin torch (sorry but new to this) as I did not understand the reference. Thumbs up! They are great images! Cheers! I'll post a few steam photos quickly, as I have to head off to work soon (ugh!): Oil fired J549 hauling a regular Victorian Goldfields Railwa...

Re: Off the Rails - Train Stuff

Amazing shots again !! Are you going long exposure on tri pod for the low light shots ? Thanks Richie! The penultimate photo was taken on a tripod, and was perhaps a twenty second exposure. There is plenty of ambient light in most larger rail yards, so you don't need an overly long exposure. Having...

Thanks, and I'm glad you enjoyed the post. My lighting techniqu...

The opportunity of getting out has been rather scarce of late, due in no small part to lockdowns caused by the pestilence. The State of Victoria (where I live) was placed into Stage 3 lockdown about a week after I got back from my sojourn in South Aus back in March. Basically, the lockdowns meant th...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

There was a rebuttal that Norwood isn't Badger. Not wanting to further fuel the fire, I will note that I have looked through that thread, and the syntax of both are identical. It also seems odd to me that once Badger's real identity was 'outed' here, Norwood appeared very quickly afterwards. I don't...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

I have been called far worse by better people. If he wants to inhabit the gutter, he's welcome to it. I won't be joining him. Just another without the balls to stand up and be counted under his real name. He has my number but the phone hasn't rung. I'd hazard a guess that he thinks he's being cleve...
