    Steam Tour in the Chunnel!

    well, in theory it could work. Stock gets hauled along the ashford mainline, where after one of the channel tunnel locos will take the stock to Calais, where a steamer from europe would take over. It could work, but not in a day though

    Something for your CV?

    UCAS. Don't you just love them? DofE/Scouts/Voluntary stuff is good for UCAS points. More stuff that you do voluntary, more UCAS points you gain (for the benefit of the younger members of the forum). simples

    [NON RAIL] Some photos

    Cheers for the feedback Nathan. I could have done a long exposure in the first one but I didn't have a tripod with me at the time. Supprisingly the second one is in colour. I did think that they looked a bit grainy. I'll change the ISO a bit more often now

    not some bad photos actually. - did you crop this one or is it how it came out? I know how you feel about limited space, as I was at Waterloo on the return, but maybe if you had it zoomed out a bit, it would be a bit better. Anyway, keep up the...

    Tornado in London

    It was unfortunate. If you look at the last video then there is evidence of no room for a tripod and no light to where I was. The other platform would have been good but there was the chance of being bowled out by a passenger service. And before anyone says anyhting about me using flash...
