Let's hope that all survives. A lot of history in those cities. The people are very courageous and resilient and I pray they prevail.
A good result for train colours IMO. It's hard to get that yellow right with Canon DSLRs once there's a bit of a build up of "work staining" (grime) Was this taken from Buckley Road near Shannon?
Thanks Michael. Yes, this was shot from near Western Lake Road crossing.
Oh you got the spot already! Very nice.
One each way. There's a closer shot from the park but I had some trouble from bridge jumpers trying there. Trains were even being held up there a few years back.
Very nice action shot. One of best DL shots I've seen. Perhaps share some of your photos on the Facebook groups where far more kiwi railfans see them.
I noticed recently a bit of "gardening" is needed along there now. Nice shot. The colour getting bit too much on this and some other photos here. Are you editing the photos in different software now?
Nice shot, one I've wanted to get for years. It's about the sunniest city in NZ but not whenever I visit!
KiwiRail has just refurbished them at I'm told over $1M each. Most could still be running in 10 years. Indeed the DXBs are close to 50 years old now.
Is this taken from Buckley Road?
It's a great photo deserving of the audience there. Congrats. I note you have the owner as 3801 Limited on RP but here it's ARHS. Is NSW Transport Museum connected to ARHS?
Lovely shot Michael. Please try getting it in RP. Also would be nice for Facebook groups.
Are you working around Otaki now?
