The Watercress Line by Steve  Liptrot
Clear

The Watercress Line is the marketing name of the Mid-Hants Railway, a heritage railway in Hampshire, England, running 10 miles from New Alresford to Alton where it connects to the National Rail network. The line gained its popular name in the days that it was used to transport locally grown watercress to markets in London.

    What a sight… I’m working on a novel where part of us takes us back to 1858, on a train such as this, so I would LOVE to see this sight for real…

    This is fabulous! :)

  • Many thanks Donna

    Fabvlous. let me know how it works!!!, very interested!!

  • I used a D300 before and the D7000 which is £400 cheaper is far better at high ISO’s and less ‘clunkier’. Not as many features but its got all I need.
