Another cold day on the ELR, to be honest it was a no brainer that these would would better in mono, a black steam train against a grey sky with snow....

Running around at Rawtenstall...



Leaving Rawtenstall...



Leaving Rawtenstall, wide angle using the Tokina 11-20mm, I have to say these low angle wide shots can be a bit hit and miss, the camera was balanced on a wall near the signal box and I went from shooting the shot above with one camera to pressing the shutter on the other without actually seeing what was in the viewscreen, so a lot of guess work on when it might be in frame.



At Ramsbottom, same train as leaving Rawtenstall above, different location, it's great that you can actually beat the train from one place to another..... You do have to be quick and lucky with the traffic - including parking at Ramsbottom.

No 3 is my favourite as the combination of the low viewing position and wide angle lens makes for a different "look".

Great set, Stuart. You've certainly been out and about in the snow and well rewarded for the effort.
