    Apologies for the lack of updates recently. I've added hundreds of pictures in the last month. Here's last month's gallery to start:

    Here's May's gallery which kicked off with a look at AGA's refurbished Mk3s. After which there's pictures from around the UK, plus the first day of trains on the Todmorden curve. To get up to date, there's yesterdays visit to look at SWT converting Class 455s to AC traction.

    Here's another update, which includes pictures from Sheffield, Nottingham (& the new tram lines), Kent (Hs2 and the new station at Rochester) - and a few pictures of progress on building the new WCML bypass at Norton Bridge.

    I've added a real mix of pix from Scotland & Northumberland that features some of the less photographed stations on the network- as well as some of the meost well known..

    I've added many more pictures from GW land & work around the Bath blockade. I've also added a few from the bank holiday blockade at Stafford, where I'm working now;

    Hi Folks, sorry for the lack of updates for a while. It's not that there's no new pictures to see (far from it) but I've been busy elsewhere. Anyways, normal service resumes from today. To start, here's a gallery of pictures from Sri Lanka. Two types of UK loco are still in use here - both built by Hunslet. One is an o-6-0 shunter, the other a 1500hp Bo-Bo. Oh, the country is also a great place for fans of mechanical signalling...http://paulbigland.zenfolio.com/p1070409048

    Here's another selection of pictures from Sri Lanka, featuring various aspects of their rail system (oh, and a few travel shots too!);
    I've added another tranche of rail pix to the Sri Lanka gallery.

    Hi Folks,

    It's a VERY long time since I've posted any photo updates, but now I'm back. In the meantime my website's grown by over 11,000 images, both historical and new, so there's plenty to see.

    Latest additions are old shots of Sri Lankan railways taken in 2004, plus recent travels in the UK to have a look at electrification progress around Bolton and the first Eurostar e320 to Brussels. Earlier this year I spent a couple of months in Thailand, Malaysia and Java, so there's a huge gallery of rail pictures showing the expansion of the rail network in those countries.

    You can find all the latest updated galleries by following this link; http://paulbigland.zenfolio.com/recent.html

    On the blogging front, I've written about what it's like to travel on the new Chines built sleeper trains in Thailand; https://paulbigland.blog/2017/02/25/thailands-new-sleeper-trains-good-but-no-cigar/

    Cheers,

    Paul

    Hello again folks. This is my first post for a while, but I've added (literally) thousands of new pictures to my website. There's many old slide scans plus new pictures from my past few months travels around the country. You can find the most recently updated galleries by following this link. http://paulbigland.zenfolio.com/recent.html
