Photographs are arranged in albums which are hopefully self-explanatory.
Keep checking back as I add more.
Bolton Abbey Station, 12 April 2009. Since the weather was so good I decided on a drive down the road to Bolton Abbey, only realising as I left that it was a "Day out with Thomas the Tank Engine" at the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway. I know the purists can have a moan about the compromises which have to be made for these events, but you can't deny that they are fantastic moneyspinners for the railway preservation movement.
Bolton Abbey station has a large car park (200+ cars) but as I approached it was overflowing and they were parked on the verge of the A59. I've the place packed with people for various "enthusiast" events (diesel events, harvest of steam etc), but nothing as crowded as this.
Got a few pictures, as long as you don't mind your locomotives with faces on!
Bolton Abbey Station, 31 March 2009. It was a non-running day but I had heard that there was a new arrival (37 294) so I dropped in to have a look. No-one around to ask permission but I had a walk around the "permissive footpath" at the back and there it was, in the bay platform siding at the west end.
I'm not intending to promote the purchase of pictures, but I know that sometime's you see someone else's picture on their website and you would just like a copy for yourself.
If you want to order any prints, all the photographs on this site are available to order at my Photobox Gallery;
It is difficult to get a single crop of a photo which will suit all sizes, so if you order anything from Photobox I urge you to click on the "Print Options" button on the shopping basket page. This will show you the print cropped as you will receive it.
All the pictures in the gallery are cropped suitably for the smaller sizes, but you may lose quite a lot off the sides when you go up to 10 x 8 inches.
If you are having prpblems just drop me an email saying which picture you want and in which print size, and I will upload another crop from the original which should do the trick.
