Images: These pictures are not censored for quality. What one person considers a bad or useless picture may be exactly what someone else is looking for. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Videos: These videos are very big, which is why railfanning videos are so rare on line. As long as Windows Media Player says "Connecting" it is working, even it if appears to be taking a very long time. It says "Connecting" until it has finished downloading the video. Please be patient. If you are unable to play these videos with Windows Media player, a problem which exists with some versions of Media Player and (sometimes) with Internet Explorer versions lower than 6, I strongly recommend the use of Quicktime if it is available. If you are using Linux, mplayer needs to be told that the videos have a bit depth of 16 (-bpp 16) to work.

Filenames refer to location, date (dd.mm.yy), and camera-assigned four digit id number.

Birmingham, England
June 19, 2009 We headed from High Wycombe up to Barnetby, a busy freight location every trainspotter we met told us we had to visit.
June 17, 2009 After a wonderful day and a half in Wellington and on the West Somerset Railway, we headed back to High Wycombe as only a trainspotter could -- via Birmingham and Water Orton station.
June 23, 2007 We caught a Virgin train in the early afternoon at Edinburgh, Scotland and made for High Wycombe, England. On the way I tried to shoot anything interesting, catching my second Class 37 and my only Class 57 of the trip. Somehow we managed to see two of the rare Class 67s but were not able to shoot either of them in time. We transferred at Leamington Spa and made the whole trip in a little under seven hours.
