That came only about a month after a train just took off here and they had to derail it in Devonport.
Wasn't very pleasant but thankfully no major injuries.
Both these are a bit scary.

Some good images in that article: the crumpled train in front of the Spirit of Tasmania, and the 'Beware of Trains' sign.

You all from the UK.... you need to stop with these amazing shots. It's not even fare. Cute. Green. Nice defused lighting. Lots of character. Just not right.

Oh... nice shot too...

Part of the reason is they never have to deal with bright sun...it's always subdued lighting. It's either cloudy, just finished raining, or just getting ready to rain.

Add to that, colorful trains, beautiful countryside...lots of cool old aqueducts, very photogenic, modern train stations and some darn good English photographers.

How can they miss???????

Love it! I remember seeing this loco in BR days in the early 60's when I used to go trainspotting (usually at Darlington) as a kid - recorded in my Ian Allen locospotting book.

That's a great shot, Ed. Love the compression. Quite the twisty section of track.

Thanks Mark! I missed this earlier somehow.

Yes, they just put a new bridge in our park that gives some great views along the bay.

First Post!
Here are a few photos from East Broad Top RR located in the mountains in Western Pennsylvania.
