    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 ;)

    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).

    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.

    DSCN0552.jpg

    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.

    Regards
    Paul.

    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...
