Hello Pianoman, Thank you for taking the effort to look, and comment. I think I have put all of them on here now. It is very rare for steam trains to run at night, but this was an exception, which I wanted to make the most of. I must say I learned a great deal about 'how to take steam locomotive pictures at night' while I was doing it. Thank you again for your appreciation of my efforts.

Best Wishes Peter

Hi Alan,

Thanks very much for the 'like' and the visit, these night shots were a bit of a one - off chance, and I've never really had much experience of doing them. I'm glad you think it is at least reasonable. I am not sure about GCR at the moment, I'm waiting for the weather forecast. Which day were you going on? That might help me decide! Best wishes Peter

Hi Karen & Alan,

Nice to hear from both of you!

Karen, thank you so much for your visit and awards here. It is most appreciated, and certainly makes being there at 04:00 am worthwhile. Interestingly, there was a lady there doing photos as well. It did initially cross my mind that you might have ventured a little nothwards to put your own special brand of magic to these scenes, but it was not the case.

Alan, what can I say now? Yes, It was good to catch up with each other, especially after missing each other at NYMR gala at spring time! I will be looking forward to seeing your pics.

Best Wishes Peter

Hi Vadim & Josef, Thank you both for visiting this picture. Vadim, I am sorry for not responding before, I don't know how I missed it. Once a year this railway runs some steam trains all through the night, so it is a good chance to get some different pictures. I am happy that you both have enjoyed it.

Best wishes Peter
