    Some jobs have no sense of time and place, a shunter is more or less universal. A scene from Morocco in 2012 as the train loco backs onto its stock. P1050775.JPG

    This is what happens when you try out one on those new fangled non-return valves for the first time, and no one knows which way around it's meant to be. P1060549.JPG

    A staged scene from a 30742 Charters day at the GWSR on Friday, I like how you've got the crew on the footplate nicely posed as well as the girl in the foreground.

    The joys of photographing at stations.
    Wilmcote with 34046, we had a clear platform until the old chap on the right came out of the bike shelter. Actually I think that by facing the loco he adds something to the shot.

    Wylam in 1985 - to get the signal box in shot it was necessary to be on the platform so nothing to do but include the crowd as part of the shot. The young lad nearest the camera doesn't look too sure of Evening Star.
