Default Flying scotsman & Tornado

I'm putting together a weekend shooting some Green steam engines in September.

Flying Scotsman and Tornado are running together for the first time 2 minutes walk from my house and darkroom

Anyone interested, all welcome.

Ian

Hi Ian.

I assume you are referring to the Severn Valley Railway weekend.

I'm hoping to get tickets for the trains - on sale from the 4th of April

While the event is too good to miss - I'm not sure the expected crowds will be all that LF friendly.

I saw Tornado at Paignton a couple of years ago - where a Fire Engine and a Fire Water Tender were re-filling her Tender - but they only had enough water to half refill her - she is huge.

It's about knowing where to be and when also how to avoid locations where the crowds get in the way. I'll be using a 360mm Tele-Xenar or a 17" ex-military(coated) Dallmeyer.

I photographed Tornado before Christmas but the light dropped to much and I had to push HP5 to over 1600 EI.

Let me know when you're around that weekend.
