View Full Version : E-5 Buckinghamshire Railway Centre (10 pix)

15th November 2010, 08:48 PM
I had not planned on driving through thick mist to Quainton. I had checked the weather - all OK. I also checked the centre's opening time.

Imagine my thoughts when I arrived. I couldn't see the sheds, lines, engines and was met with a large CLOSED sign because they were dressing the site for the coming season. *waving

However, a visit to the office was met with a friendly guy who said I could go into the hall and take some pics there.

I respected his wishes but found myself in the close vicinity of the centre and didn't want to pass up an opportunity of firing up my new best friend - the E-5 (still un-named). The mist lifted sufficiently to take a few shots.
I'll shall have to return another day because the sheds contain some real gems.

I enjoyed it a lot - loved the misty shots especially, as well as the 'detail' shots.

Anyone seen the specs of the Dynamic Range on the E-5 compared to other Oly-models?

A nice series, looks like an interesting place to visit. I particularly like the cobweb shot.

Maybe I'm a purist - but I not sure I like to see one of the great GWR beasts dressed up like Thomas the Tank! Nice shots. Must make an effort to get there myself next year.

I especially like the atmosphere of the last two, Barrie.

Like the last two ,the mist gives them a lovely softness.

Thanks so much everyone.

The day had many plusses - apart from being very cold.

Anne and I have visited often. There is such much to see and take.

I have to say the E-5 is a joy to use and am just settling down with settings.

Very nice Barrie, those last two have very ethereal quality to them.*chr
