Doncaster : Photos taken at Doncaster station and Works, mostly between 1984 and 1992. As with most locations, I've visited Doncaster on far more occasions than these few photos might suggest; I didn't always have a camera with me, and film was expensive. What a great thing digital photography is!

A Grand Day Out - Southampton October 2010 : Until last October I had never knowingly set foot in Southampton. Being an alumnus of what is now the University of Portsmouth, that might not be so surprising. In the intervening years I’ve been through the city a few times, caught ferries to France and the Isle of Wight, but never actually explored the place.

On Thursday 21st, thanks to Nutter Tours ™ (proprietor Steve Clark☺) I had a cracking introduction to the freight scene in and around Southampton, which is both busy (I saw 21 separate workings in 7 hours) and varied; freightliner and DBS inter-modals, engineering, cars for export (and the return empties), oil tanks, sand, MoD and an FHH extra from Margam to Eastleigh works featuring German hooded steel carriers. Add to that the ability to watch the action at both Maritime and Millbrook Freightliner terminals and the Western Docks car unloading ramp and Southampton clearly is one of the country’s major freight hotspots.
