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.

London, England
December 22, 2011 We took the London overground to Willesden Junction, explored there, took the Underground on the Bakerloo to the Jubilee line, got off at Westminster, found Parliament closed for the holidays, walked to Trafalgar Square for lunch, on to Covent Garden, toured the Transport Museum, found the Rosetta Stone at the British Museum, grabbed a doubledeck bus on route 242 to Hoxton to the Monster Supply Shop, stopped in at the East London Furniture Company, on to London Hackspace, and across to Brick Lane for curry on a street where salespeople from each of the numerous curry restaurants try and pitch you on a deal to get you to eat there instead of next door, then took the Overground back to Camden Town, catching a Freightliner intermodal on the Overground tracks as we detrained.
December 20, 2011 I went into London for a few hours and explored my way back to Marlow.
February 12, 2006 On the return from 2 weeks in Kenya for my brother's wedding, we had a 10-hour layover in London, England so we went into London's Paddington station to see what we could see. It was a stereotypical dark and stormy day in London but we nevertheless saw 3 class 66s, a CWR train, and some interesting looking freight equipment as well as a lot of passenger trains before returning to London-Heathrow airport.
