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.

We boarded the train at Reading station and went across to Newport, Wales, returning via Bristol and heading down to Taunton for the next day's trip. At Newport, we went to a bridge and watched for about 30 minutes. Moments after we left, a train came over with a pair of rare Class 67s! Grumbling at the loss, I was more than a little surprised to have the same train return a few minutes later and take us to Taunton.|
|June 25, 2007||We picked up the train at Marlow and connected at Maidenhead and Reading to get to Gatwick airport for our flight home, spending an hour or so at Reading and just missing a Freightliner Class 66 passing through the station upon our arrival.|
|June 24, 2007||With one day to explore and unlimited-use BritRail passes in our hands, we hopped on a train at Marlow and went up to Didcot to see the museum and see what else we could find. While we were there, yet another Class 67 went by us without us having a chance to shoot it, towing a long cut of EWS coaches heading toward London.|
