How can you be sure of the numbers from this distance?

I also have a couple of shots at 300mm versus 58 which make the numbers easily visible. The zoomed out shot looked better to me,which is why it ended up on Flickr and then here. I try really hard not to post 20 pics of the the same train, which I used to be guilty of in my noob days :rolleyes:


Ahh, Thank you! ;-)a

At last, some decent weather to capture my current favourite engine, 60009 Union of South Africa, on the East Lancashire Railway, UK. Tried a different POV, too.

Some shots from a photo charter on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway this week, as you can see from the sky or lack of it the conditions were full dull!
