Chugging along by ellismorleyphto

A trip on the Firefly in Didcot Railway Museum. Not in the loco as it appears, instead we are in a cattle box type truck. My friends and I were lucky enough to be in the front so that I could get this photograph. I am tempted to return with an SLR one day but am not sure I need the “Spotter” reputation :-P

    Great pov and capture … I would think they are used to having slr photographers there .. didn’t they have the Hogwarts train at one point? … by the way I don’t drink coffee either (strictly a tea girl) but if we ever come back up your way I’ll let you know ~ cheers :)

  • Hmm… I did not have an SLR at the time and to be honest I probably would not take one there if I were to ever return, but my trusty IXUS did very well. ☺
