Tracked this train over a couple of bridges. Hills, bridges, tunnels- this rail road reminded me of a model set.

Interesting landscape, marvelous structures.
Similar design. Wonder why first 3 arches closed in with a smaller one at ground.
There's some detail to browse.

In the second image? I'm not sure, but I think that is a "half-bridge" on a hill side, rather than crossing a valley. I'm wondering if the small arch at ground isn't a tunnel trough the hill.

That train line has a ton of bridges:

Thanks.
I'd missed your other photo thread.
All fascinating.
In terrain like that I could imagine the bridge/ tunnel would be par for the course.

One I took over the weekend.
I am Normally working on the railway, but this time I remembered my camera (other than phone) so an opportunity to get some decent photos at the weekend was not to be missed.

It is a great picture but not an old train. It was built from new and first steamed in 2008. A fantastic project! I caught a glimpse of it at Paddington Station where it had just hauled a mainline special. Unfortunately I was running for my train and wasn't able to stop and look at it! :-( They have to turn the fire alarm off at the station when it comes in! :lol:

Hiya,
This loco is not actually that old, it is in fact only 10 years old, and was the first main line steam loco to be built in the UK since the mid 1960's. There are at least another 5 brand new mainline steam locos being finished in the next 5 to 10 years!!

Rather exciting times :-)

Thanks for the update
Well. That's very good to see.
Will it (they) be used for day to day running or touristy trips?

Eurostar - Taking passengers from London to the Continent.
These shots are 10 frames apart. I took them as a sequence to test the 7D.
I estimate the speed in the region of 70mph. (Dunno what that is in kph - kph just happens when it gets in mid-tunnel;-)a)

the sexiest thing on several wheels ...


A love story in silence, relationships bonded by
A powerful wave of emotion
Crashing on the shores of frequence.
