Steaming through Virginia Water (Surrey – GU25)

 

 

Why not pop along to see my friends at the Great Cockcrow Railway, Lyne  <click here>

 

An enthusiastic work colleague started telling me when interesting locos were expected through Virginia Water.

Gradually I’ve built up a rather nice collection of images, and have decided to bring these together on this page.

One of the challenges to photographing these majestic machines, apart from being in the right place at the right time,

is to try to get camera settings ready for what can often be just a few critical seconds of opportunity.

I hope that the ‘experts’ might consider my little collection worthy of the effort involved.
