Elsecar 16 August 2009 : After visiting Barrow Hill roundhouse, we stopped off at Elsecar to see what it consisted of; very interesting place, with a small collection of locos & stock, including ex-BR class 14 'Teddy Bear' 14901 (D9524), which had unfortunately just broken down. Other things of note included a surprising number of road vehicles, most of which were fire appliances.

Manchester Museum of Science & Industry 15 August 2009 : A visit to the MOSI for 'The Great Garratt Gathering' weekend; it rained (obviously), but brightened at times up for some slightly better outdoor shots. Things indoors were a little cramped for decent photos really, but a very interesting affair nonetheless. This collection contains a wide range of (largely unknown) transport-related items, from steam engines to aeroplanes, with bicycles, cars, horse-drawn carts, and even a tank thrown in for good measure. A recommended day out. PS: don't take a large bag with you; the lockers are too small, and H & S and security regulations prevent being able to leave bags at the reception desk - I had to lug a camera bag and a heavy holdall around throughout, extremely awkward in crowds, and a PITA.

FRANCE MAY/JUNE 2011 : A family holiday to Uzes by rail allowed some photography. The only full day I had on Wednesday 1st June 2011 was spoilt by a very strong Mistral wind blowing which made it almost impossible to stand up at Orange and mixed with rain and some sun plus very low freight activity :-(

Reading : Always a place of interest & diversity, I've spent a good deal of time at Reading over the years, with sufficient material for it to warrant it's own collection, and here it is. Actually, I was born in Reading in late 1949, living in Tilehurst until I was about 8. I didn't have a camera then....
