Shame the 66s are blurred.
Yeh, If only if they came a little later, then it would be have been a great pic.

Julian G,

Wagons, coaches, wheels and the buffers are part of the train too. Why not try and get the whole train into the shot? And according to the computer of wonders, 5Z81 07:15 Old Oak Common to Derby (66727 top and tailed with 66726) were reported 20 odd minutes late past Acton West so were booked through in very weak light. Looking through the whole of your site (and there are some decent pictures), investing in a good book about composure and camera functions won't hurt you and if used correctly, will help you develop a technique and do wonders for you in the long run.

There are some incorrect captions;

The Cornish Riviera is the 0947 Penzance - Paddington and the 10:35 Paddington - Penzance which as Jim said is booked a pair of HSTs. Night Riviera is the sleeper.

The GBRF 66s were OOC - Derby not Landore.

47703 refused to start up at East Ham. The tour started at Willesden because the ECS was late as a result of 47703 failing.

Victa Railfreight doesn't own 47832

Why would a sleeper ECS be dragged to Wembley for servicing at Euston :???:

Comparision has been used in the wrong context in the pic of the 442s - difference would be a better word.

Will try and take the whole train into the shot in the future.

Basically it's the night pictures the camera has a problem with, like yesterday I went to Clapham J to play with the Exposure, I'll post the results here soon

Eek why do 2 people have the same signature.

As for the Cornich Riviers being booked a pair of HSTs i think not...
