the return by Dru Marland on Flickr.I love Dru’s pictures — been meaning to share this one with LITL since it was posted!
Attadale on Flickr.The Kyle Line, shot while stopped for lunch on a ride from Skye to Torridon back in september at a location that I copied from previously posted shots.
Brighton and Chatham Main Lines on Flickr.Another one from the terminus tracks into London Victoria, taken back in the summer. The ruins of Battersea Power Station across the river in the distance.
Plantation Viaduct on Flickr.Popped up to Skye and Torridon at the end of September. Got a chance to shoot a bit of Kyle Line. Discovered that the reason there are so many shots of the seemingly remote and desolate Plantation Viaduct out there is that there’s a nice viewpoint right next to the main road…
Sprinters on the SWML on Flickr.
A properly mismatched pairing of one of FGW’s cut and shut 3 car class 158s led by a 150, heading up out of Weymouth towards the Ridgeway tunnel, with the Isle of Portland in the distance, shot from the old hairpin road (now cycle track) bridge. All slightly soft because the autofocus picked up a bramble bush in the foreground :(
Castlefield on Flickr.
The tangle of once competing lines into Manchester Deansgate and the disused Manchester Central over the Bridgewater Canal a year or two back.
train! on Flickr.
An old one, taken in 2007 from beside the Sharpness and Gloucester Canal, looking across the Severn estuary at the Gloucester-Newport line as what I assume without having made any detailed study to be a CrossCountry Turbostar passes. Now having had a chance to take a proper look and check the dates, I guess this was back in the era of Central Trains.
Waverley on Flickr.
I caught a Caledonian Sleeper loco snoozing beneath Calton Hill at the far end of the Edinburgh Waverley platforms a year or two back…
159 on Flickr.
Just another one from the West of England Main Line, here just west of Templecombe at Stowell in South Somerset, shot back when LITL was young last summer.
Rush hour past Battersea on Flickr.
The Brighton and Kent Main Lines and commuter lines into London Victoria shot from Chelsea Bridge earlier this week, with a couple of Southern services probably bound for the coast, plus a Gatwick Express just arriving on the right. I’d tried shooting this scene before, with some long exposures and night shots, but this is the first one to make it onto LITL.
Barmouth on Flickr.
The classic view of the Barmouth Bridge on the Cambrian Coast Line, with Cadair Idris rising into the clouds behind — this one shot a couple of years ago, long before LITL.
Electrostar at the beach on Flickr.
A never previously featured location on LITL… in fact, I don’t think any of this line has been on here before. I stumbled upon this view of the East Sussex Coastway Line a couple of weeks ago on a day when I’d had no LITL shots in mind, more interested in shooting the East Sussex hills and coast.
Ribblehead on Flickr.
Another one from the trip around Cumbria, Yorkshire and Lancashire back during the Easter weekend. I think I’ve probably got better ones of Ribblehead, but…
Great Western Main Line on Flickr.
Was in Bath a few weeks ago, taking a look at the new Two Tunnels rail trail on the old Somerset and Dorset Railway. Stopped along the way to get this one of the southern suburbs of the city from the spot in Twerton where the S&D crossed over the GWR, as a Paddington to Weston HST passed through.
