    Congratulations on your placement! I would have loved to see the Flying Scotsman in its heyday.

    Thanks to all those who voted for my image.

A grelim has got into the system, this picture was in fact taken with my new Canon 60D - the exif info got lost when I resized the image, resulting in me needing to submit a larger image with the exif info.

    Hard to imagine a bustling train station at this spot - it's so peacefull looking.

    Beautiful. All you need is a skeleton with a bowler hat and briefcase waiting for the next train.
