Snapped this morning on its way to Carlisle eta @ Carlisle 13:38.
do they usually leave old track like that in the middle. :?
Yup, it's common practice on relief or slow lines. It's nice to see a GWR castle pounding the steels, there's a spamcan coming through crewe soon too I believe?
You need to keep an eye on those straight lines, or it looks like you were falling over when you took the photo
Also horizons where most people get it wrong, horizons also need to be straight
So what program do you have on your computer to chop and change picy
Any program that can edit photos can do this, I use Nikon Capture, Paintshop Pro and Photoshop CS4, for this one was just a quick thing so used Nikon Capture, very simple to use and very good (You don't need a Nikon camera to use it).
PS clone stamp tool is ace!
now that is cool!
I use GIMP, Paul.
Thx for the replies - here are few more, 13 months ago we had a special visitor to our depot.
The first pic show the Duchess passing 57314 - Firefly - 1 of 15 Virgin rescue vehicle just in case Pendinlino fails whilst in traffic.
If you ever take a trip from Crewe to Holyhead - the pendo is pulled with a Thunderbird vehicle - reason "No overhead line"
The rescue vehicles are named after the characters of the hit T.V series "THUNDERBIRDS" all the vehicles carry names and Lady P plate is pink.
Second picy - duchess within the depot.
The third picy is Tangmere 34067 on the down fast on its was to Preston.
Finally a special for Garuf - as he is a western region fan - D1015 Western Champion - Diesel Hydraulic and at a special request the driver (who we know) rubbed the brakes.
ooof, a nice class 52. I was always a fan of the huge class 45's, before they got taken out of service in favour of series 7's.
Pannier tanks are nice too, and j94's...
