I agree with Ed - these are the highlight of my week. Hope your trip was for at least 6 months!!!!!
I have also been studying your pictures and the related info, and I am learning quite a lot which will help my own photography.
Excellent - as always!
Still enthusiastically waiting for each episode.
Will be sad when you are finished!
I am really enjoying this series - immensely!
Jon, every thing here has changed in the last few years.
There have been major line closures all over - the Montague Pass line still exists but has not seen an actual train for a while. You are correct in that a Power Van has been used for tourists, but has now been out of service for 4...
Another enjoyable set of great pictures!
Thank you - you have no idea how much pleasure these are giving me!
Many of these locos remain currently in service - this one was photographed last weekend pulling a freight train in the Johannesburg area.
The Class 6E1, Series 4 3 kV DC electric locomotive was designed and built in South Africa between 1973 and 1974.
They had sophisticated traction links...
Here is the sentence -
Ich habe nicht in der Lage, wieder nach Deutschland zurückkehren, so dass ich nicht in der Lage, es zu besuchen.

An alternative to Sigma is the Tokina AF 12-24mm f/4 AT-X Pro DX. This is reputed to be a better lens - but I cannot comment as I never seen or handled one.
The Sigma 8mm will make a significant difference though and the lower you can get the better, though I do not how extreme the...
Reason I thought Wolkfsburg is actually the "VW" private railway inside. It is I think the largest operation of its kind in Europe.
I have been on a tour of the VW plant and saw part of it and it looked interesting and something not photographed - they generally do not allow photographs.
Lovely set of pics in a very nice part of Germany.
See if you can get some pics in Wolfsburg!
Tom, while you definitely represent the one point of view, I often prefer to have the protection that a filter offers on my lenses.
The Hoya Pro filters are good quality and the Tamron lens is a decent lens worth looking after.
Ohle - a polarizer as Pat suggests, would help you with a lot of...
Nice shots. The last one is a real cracker!
What can I say?
These are truly great pictures - you have a superb eye for composition, and this coupled with your digital photo skills have resulted in some memorable shots. And of my favorite subject too!
I have looked at all the pics several times over and really enjoy them. I hope...
For my sins I currently live in Johannesburg!
I enjoy trains - i have an interest in American loco's, make paper models (from time to time), and enjoy train photography - of any railway related subject, from electrics to steam, from railway people to "objects".
Mihai - that is a really nice shot!
Of a loco too, that not many of us will ever get to see!
