Might that not be due to the fact that the sky is very often like that sometimes?

Best get used to black sky for a while anyway, it's bloody terribly dark after 1715 for a while! Makes for some nice atmospheric shots in places though!

You are correct - it's not that often that there is lovely clear blue sky without any haziness - ideal photting weather. With the autumn colours as well at the moment, some days I wish I wasn't stuck indoors working all day.

No sander fitted to the 153s? A terrible mistake that! I would have thought there would be one somewhere on them, but hey!

For now, I need to get a decent cam of my own though, it's terribly annoying not being able to go photting due to no cam!

The powers that be reckon sanders would interfere with the track circuit actuators fitted to 153's & could actually lead to a 153 "disappearing" off a signallers panel.:pale:
