Taken with M9 and the Zeiss Biogon 35/2 - an outstanding lens, in my opinion.

Search YouTube for 45379 to see the locomotive in action

Euston,

An excellent series with great composition, lovely colors, fine detail and sharpness. I have seen many Pullman cars and have ridden in some a long time ago. The detail of the drive wheels and connecting rods is exquisite.

Thank you, Paul. We had lunch on this train - a real trip down memory lane.

A lovely series of photographs, I particularly enjoyed the driving wheel details, true engineering, honest and bold. Was this the Bluebell Railway?

Regards
Charles

Thank you very much, Charles.

This is the Mid-Hants Railway, known as the Watercress Line, which runs between Alresford and Alton in Hampshire.

Euston,
this is great cinema with great colors and details. The steam is giving it such a nostalgic touch. The shining metal is provided yet with a soft presence almost undescribeable.
Best regards

Iduna
