I've been working 12-14 hour days the past few weeks so I haven't been doing any photography, but this is a great idea for a thread...so here's my 2 cents

Interesting thread, make's those cloudy/rainy day shot's of mine "maybe" worthy of posting to RP. Now if I could just add some decent scenery.

My utterly most boring pictures

I enjoyed this thread. I have been making it a point to break as many of the rules as I can in my recent uploads. We can all move on past the wedge shots now and again, and all the pictures linked here further the 'art.'

Neat idea for a thread, here are some of mine that would be considered "exceptions to the rules".

Janet, is that some sort of a side rod on the class 09?

Yes. Class 09 shunters (switchers), along with class 05 (and a couple of others), are an 0-6-0 arrangement.

How does that work? Is there a traction motor on one axle?

Not sure where the traction motors are, but this might be useful in regards to the class itself:

Yes, 08's and 09's are diesel-electrics.

Other UK shunter classes with side rods included 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06 all mechanical transmission and 07, 10, 11, 12, 13 (2 08's permenently coupled for hump shunting), diesel-electric. All these are now pretty much extinct

Class 14 also had side rods. These were diesel-hydraulic and used for short trip workings and shunting.

Hi Janusz, here is a similar loco from the cab end without the weeds in the way

This is the "bog-standard" UK shunting loco (switcher), most are now 40 to 50 years old, though the general design dates back before WW2.

They are simple and very reliable (as long as they are looked after) and will shift heavy loads, although not very fast - class 08 is 15mph max speed and class 09, like the blue loco in the picture is 25mph max.

Many European switchers have side rods, for example

Germany (these are hydraulic drive)

Portugal, these are actually a UK design (Sentinel / Rolls Royce)

Many very old electric locos also have side rods where one large motor drives the coupled wheels via a coupling rod.....

So it is (for us over this side of the Atlantic at least) not an unusual arrangement.

Thanks, Janet! I think I saw one such unit in Italy some years ago, a small switcher.

Guess I'll join in the fun. I haven't bent the rules too much, but I like that RP will accept an interesting photo despite minor technical flaws. Such as...

Have I posted them together already? My memory is going with old age.

That reminds me...has there been a thread with shots contrasting various seasons like my two above? I think it would be quite an interesting thread, as well as a challenge to get shots on here in the same exact spot, framing, etc! Speaking of that, I didn't even compare the two when I was cropping the snow shot. When I looked at the other one later before submitting the two of them, I then realized how close I got the angle, the train placement and crop.

What if this thread is a trap to locate pictures that slipped through?
