The third in a set of mono (who would have thought that a year or two ago!) steam images. Probably not one to get the attention, but even though it's not the usual train on the move shot, I rather like this one Wink

Memories of a bygone era, used to see this view at Waverley Station as the trains ran alongside the Castle above.
Dr Beeching and his plans for the "destruction" of the railways we now spend fortunes trying to put right. Successive governments have been trying to force people back onto the railways that they ripped apart. Talk about jobs for the boys.

Superb (and very appropriate) black and white conversion and excellent use of the long lens. My only criticism is that it seems a bit odd to have a single rail on the right-hand side, particularly as the second rail can only be very slightly out of shot. It might require an excessive zoom out to include that rail and enough space by its side to not have it jammed against the edge of the frame so the solution to this might be to crop a little tighter so the 'missing' rail isn't so close to being in the shot.

Tbh David I didn't really notice the rail position when I took the shot, as I was trying to get the diagonal of the train leaving the station from the bridge. In effect it is a grab shot, as a moving train is soon gone and it's not a shot often seen on EPZ....no doubt why it didn't get many votes. Wink I do agree though, it does look a bit odd and if I post another I will keep an eye on the rails Smile
