This is a '5600' class 0-6-2 Tank locomotive No 5619 pulling passenger rolling stock on the Gloucester & Warickshire railway.
It was taken between winchcombe & greet tunnel entrance.

It was a Gala weekend and it was very difficult to get a clear picture due to the large numbers of spotters, photographers and videographers all wearing Orange Hi-viz jackets and waistcoates close to the track. i was well clear and up a bank.
Having waited 40 minutes on the bank, just 8 minutes before the train arrived two guys climbed the bank and set up right in front of me......... then they precceded to moan about other photog's setting up in their view line.
The cheek of it...:lol:;):rolleyes:

Canon 40D + 28-135mm zoom @ 28mm.
F8, 1/500sec, iso400.

The photographers with the hi-viz jackets will be paid up club members with a photographers lineside pass which they also have to pay for.
So if you want to get up close at the best spots you know what to do, failing that clone out the ones who do. :D


ps. If you want to sell your 300mm F4 let me know.

Swiss toni, i totally understand what your saying, and yes i could also have got a lineside pass...............but there were so many there and each person wanted to get in front of the rest so in the end people were almost right on top of the trains. the stations were in my opinion almost un workable.

however i'm not deterred and will go again.

The cheek of it...

:D CBS did that to me at a NASCAR race when I was shooting a head shot with Rusty Wallace.

I would have had to have had a word or two :evil: I accept that non-photographers simply walk right past the lens - just as that once in a lifetime shot is fleeting past... but there's no excuse for keen shooters do do that to another! I make a point of keeping out of others way - and I expect them to do likewise...

Nice image anyway... It's a good line and there's always stuff going on at the line... and at Didcot - which must be quite close for you I guess!

Cheers;

Lee

Lee, thanks for the comments, Don't get me wrong.....i had accepted the situation, like swiss toni said, they had probley paid for the privilege, my comments were Togue-in-cheek.

What was amusing though was they were not concerned with obstructing my view, but when others got in front of them, some very interesting and Heated comments were made.;)


Didcot is close,and they have lots to look at, but their track is short and in my opinion not as scenic.
