    SVR will be closer for you too, Kidderminster is the usual start point for it, but several stations you can get to along the route.

    I will :D

    Great shots, I particularly like the one with the pipe in his mouth. Just seems to shout that era to me loud and clear.

    Very nice, I like those alot. 1st one stands out especially with the lipstick on his cheek.

    3rd it good aswell, the desaturation works well.

    Some really good shots there -Oy-.
    1st shot instantly made me think 'Dads Army' ... puts on voice "Do you think thats wise, sir" :)

    Also really like the last shot of the couple ... looks very vintage, & reminds me of 'Pennies From Heaven'.

    Do you go to these sort of events often? What actually goes on at them?
    How comfortable are the people with having cameras put in their faces?

    Im inerested in attending one of these butI dont have any long lenses.

    Basically, it's re-enactors travelling up and down the East Lancs Railway line, sometimes interacting between themselves as well.
    Generally, they don't seem to mind... but you'll know by their body language if they've had enough.
    All I use is a Sigma 18-125. That got me some good shots, given I could only visit the event on the last day.

    Thanks for that Dave.
    I may be getting a pass for one of these events but wasnt really sure what to expect.
    I was involved with re-enactments myself (medieval) some years ago but with that, there was plenty of freedom of movement, I somehow envisage this as being quite restrictive if its confined to a railwayline/station.

    Are the events popular/crowded?

    It is a popular event, and can get crowded... especially if the weather's fine.

    It's not pinsharp, due to the shot being handheld (as the vast majority of my work is), the shutterspeed being 1/50. and the lens nearing the 125mm end.
