58021 Clay Cross   58021 heads south towards Clay Cross junction with the Castleton rail train, 22 August 1996
In "Mainline" livery, one of many disappearing under the red of EWS.
76s at Wadsley Bridge   76 013 & 021 at Wadsley Bridge with the AC/DC railtour, 16 September 1978
The headboard, I must mention, referred to the day's haulage, not its participants...
D821 alias "Dopfelganger"   D821 alias "Doppelganger" heads south near Moor Gates on the North York Moors Railway, 5 August 1990
A bit of an eye-catcher...
(When I first put this photo up, I used the name "Dopfelganger". I'm not sure why - can anyone confirm (with a photo) the name carried?)
33 leaving Salisbury   A class 33 catches the lowering sun as it leaves Salisbury with an eastbound train, 11 October 1986
This one won me a camera club prize (but it didn't do so well in the railway society)
26s leaving Kyle of Lochalsh   D5300 & D5301 head away from Kyle of Lochalsh with an Inverness train, 11 August 1993 (25th anniversary of the 15 guinea special)
The mountains of Skye loom in the background. I'm struggling to hold the camera still under the onslaught of midges.
87012 at Stafford   87012 catches the evening sun at Stafford station, 24 July 1996
Just a glint as the sun drops below the thick cloud cover.
NIR 208 at Balbriggan   NIR GM No 208 hurries through Balbriggan with a Dublin train, 30 May 1995
NIR livery in Eire, on the Belfast - Dublin service
BB 16767 at Grande Synthe   SNCF BB16500 no.16767 arrives at Grande Synthe, Dunquerque, with a train of steel flats, 29 May 1997
There's lots going on at this yard, only a few miles from the tunnel and ferries at Calais.
DD EMU no 92055 at Hazebrouck   Double deck EMU no 92055 arrives at Hazebrouck, 29 May 1997
Eat your heart out, Bulleid....
