Hi Nick and Richard,
Thank you both for visiting at this late stage. Both of you know where my new home will be, so I hope to see you there, and carry on our friendship.
Nick, I can only imagine what it must have been like to see one of these, or the heavier Merchant Navy, in full cry with such an important train. I am so pleased that you have witnessed such a sight!
Yes it was fun while it lasted and a painful lesson learned. I would never put so much effort in a free online project again especially anything by Google. You photos are getting better, I've finally realized what makes a good photo for me is dramatic lighting, this requires time and patience something most of us dont have, easier to take make bad or boring shots than waiting for the one good one, but not nearly as rewarding!

Hi Bruce, This whole issue has been a major disappointment for me; probably my own fault for spending too much time enjoying every aspect of what made Panoramio so appealing to people like us.
A couple of years ago I opened a limited G+ account. I also decided to use Gphotos as a storage backup and there, they remained, in storage I presumed. I have since discovered that many are visible on GMaps and GE. I must have inadvertently given them permission to display them at that time. I can't help but feel a major resentment toward Google for their lack of respect and disregard of Panoramio's contributions to their viewers, and of course, their deep pockets. I certainly don't mind sharing my photos with the world, but I believe Google has lost all interest in retaining quality photographs. The only positive point I can see in leaving photos here is them being viewable in GE.
It seems that a lot of the serious and/or professional photographers have already joined Ipernity and consider it to be the best alternative; several others have joined 500px. I will most likely check out these two options in hopes of staying in touch with some mighty fine people that I've had the privilege to get to know here on Panoramio.
