Beneath a line of old goods wagons at Tanfield Railway, County Durham.

Occasionally one may catch a fleeting glimpse of the North-East's rarer specimens lurking beneath such abandoned vehicles, an example being shown in colour in V2.

Well considered approach, Bill, working well in B and W: interesting variant at V 2, a quick snatch shot I'm guessing.

V2 is indeed a rare sighting Wink

He who dares wins good angle looks good well spotted good idea. V2 is interesting so rare I have never seen it before in the North-East's rarer specimens but will keep looking.

Beware of what you might find underneath trains. Rusty bits, oily bits and occasionally nice friendly bits.

V1 really grabbed my attention Bill, what an amazing shot! I hope you are going to print this LARGE and hang it on your wall - I know I would!
kind regards,
Robin

Love V1 but rather offended by V2 - you could have done the gentlemanly thing and gone in there with the oil can yourself instead of sending poor Moira!

V1 is excellent Bill but didn't you do well to spot the elusive moiracus troublesomatis. Not seen very often north of Kent and was last spotted in the North East of England about 3 weeks ago one Thursday and the Big T gathering.

I do hope there was wooden wedges under the wagon wheels here Bill.
I recall at work one night sitting having our break,(nos 3 of 12 I think it was !!),
only to see three wagons rolling slowly past our window !! After a big enquiry it was
established the vibrations from a high speed train on the main line set them in motion.
After that,every wagon had to have a wedge underneath the wheels.

I recognise the rare specimen in V2. It's the Lesser Spotted Crouching Tiger Hidden Togger.

Lovely composition and focus in V1, Bill.

I think they were cemented in place, Mick. Doubt if they have moved in 20 years.
And the nearest train passes at about 5mph, once a week.

What a brilliant shot in V1 Bill, I really like the view point etc.
I really like V2 as well, but sadly, Moira's veiw point is somewhat obscured.Smile good shot though.
And I just had to come back and give you my award for V1 Bill, it's excellent !!!
