The A1 Peppercorn 'Tornado' passing Paisley today.

This engine dates from.... 2008!

Both taken on 7D mk1 with Canon 70-200 f2.8L
ISO 160, f5.6, AVmode, -1/3EV, Ai Servo mode with zone shifted manually as train moved through frame.

I was using a 30mb/s card, but which lacked UDMA.. if I had my UDMA card in I would have got many more shots.. the blessing is perhaps that the slower card meant I had enforced periods where the AF could track with the mirror down.

Hi Tinky.
Lovely shots, a strange blend of the old and the modern, not only because it was built in 2008 but with all the catenary wires for the electric service which would normally dominate the lines.

Cheers, Graham.

Yep, I was going to try and get to a diesel line for a few shots, but just didn't have the time.  This was local, I knew I'd get a clear shot at track level, so took the easy route.

Cheers

Pictures of a couple of old railroad bridges that have been converted to walking paths. I like that the bridges and old railroad bridges are put to good use but it is a shame the railroads are disappearing. I really have enjoyed train travel in Europe. It is a very relaxing way to travel.
