Ahhhhh. I knew it was something. My love for British trains and the three years I lived there as a child in the 80s has come back to haunt me.

Brace Yourself...

For an onslaught of 611 photos. Some even from myself. Lerro has their shoots this weekend. I hopped on one of the evening shoots but $700 was just to much for the night shoots.

I have come to learn a lot of RP is trial and error. Sometimes things make it through, sometimes they don't. Depends on the screener, time of day, orientation of the planets among other things :)

Sometimes you can't win. Thought these pan shots were quite good.
