Well seen Ron, lot of detail going on in this shot.

Can't quite grasp why you used 1/60 shutter speed giving f/13 as the subject is very shallow depth. If it was hand held, well done.

Oh Ron.
If you only knew the hours we spent there on wet days when William was little. There was a Michael Portillo programme on the other week (he's travelling about the country by rail) and it brought back so many memories when he stopped off there.

Nice capture by the way.

William could now look at it and say saomething like "Oh, that's a 1934 LMS ventilated goods van on a BR frame"
Best wishes,
