So thats it now. The steam galas are all but over. After months of planning, engines arranged, schedules drawn up, rosters issued, all of the galas and come and gone in the space of a few short weeks.
Reading back over my last couple of entries it doesn't seem long ago I was making my own plans on which galas I was going to attend. This list this year was substantially longer than what I managed last year. Thankfully I have a very forgiving wife who puts up with, if not quite understands my need to spend so many days at railways.
Here are some of my favourite shots from the last few weeks. I'll let you judge whether her patience is justified or not.
I have just returned from yet another event, the Keighley and Worth Valley Beer & Music festival, for which pictures will hopefully be up by the end of the week.
With the end of the main steam season I am also given some time to have a bit of a website 'clear-up' In the time I've had this current site I've spend many hours getting it how I want it and adding photos as I have taken them. Never have I gone back through the old ones though and deleted the 'rubbish'. I have learnt so much in the last 18 months, a lot of the photos I took back when I started I wouldn't even consider uploading now.
You may notice, as you look through, some 'Golden Oldies' galleries appearing. These are where the shots I save will be put as I clear out the old galleries.
