    Glasgow Metro, Buchanan Street station, just before the evening rush. The car is in a livery to commemorate 120 years of the clockwork orange in 2016. Well worth the £1.70 to do the complete circle, takes about 30 minutes. P1080769.JPG

    In this photo I caught the crew checking under the bonnet of former Reyrolles No 2. Standing in for Lady Armstrong an identical Armstrong Whitworth diesel on the "Farne Islander" on the 17/02/19 North Sunderland Railway themed event [Chathill to Seahouses].

    Edit: Forgot to say at Marley Hill, Tanfield Railways' HQ. Further Edit: Having discovered the "vignette" function on my digital camera I've been taking [occasionally] twin shots with and without the effect....
