Is this a demolition derby rail track?

You not a train spotter are ya Kenny ?

Hahaha.... I am glad you spotted that KC - I must admit when I lightened my darkness and say the crossover I was stunned for a little while.

I am sure they know what they are doing.

Cheers chaps - David waiting for spring!

Hardly David. I think it was a touch of sarcasm as I suffer from Siderodromophobia.

regards from an unusually snowy Teesside.

It gets a lot better when you count all those diagonals!!!

I gotta go lie down for a while!!!

Superb image David,

Easter Greetings

You have changed the crosswords to crossroads? Not a bad deal at all. It's a photo with a nice move and mood.

David Brown Photogra… on March 27, 2013

Sorry to hear that Kenny I have never had a great love of them except when they present themselves as an alternative to flying!

Thank you Mike - the diagonals just keep on gettin' better in this image. Easter Greetings to you too....

Thank you Sixten I heard the engine coming down the tracks while I was on the OTHER side of the bridge shooting the sunset on the cityscape opposite. So I dodged the traffic and got across the bridge and only had time for one quick review of settings and shoot!

I think I got away with it.

Best wishes y'all - David

Brilliant shot David only slightly marred by the strange alien locomotive but saved by some really classy platelaying!!!



David Brown Photogra… on March 27, 2013

Its a classic hobo kinda train ain't it Jeff?

Platelaying? I'm going to bow to your superior knowledge on that one mate.

Many thanks - David

Sorry David - term used for railway track building. Check out Clapham Junction images in Google!!

Cheers - Jeff

All you need is a jail and you have the makings of a good ole country tune! Nice pic, David.

Great job!

Thank you FD we all hope so, although a train on this line DID fall off not far up the track a few years ago. It landed in a tattoo parlor!

Liam - great to hear from you. Are you back home for a while? Many thanks buddy.

Best wishes y'all - David

Neil Grimwood on April 15, 2013

Sunset and a train will do just fine David, although i think maybe "The Man in Black" might have been a bit confused if he'd tried to "Walk that Line" ;-))

David Brown Photogra… on April 17, 2013

Thank you Roeli Bindels

You may be right Neil but JRC was a resourceful chap, he'd a found a way.

Many thanks to you both - David
