Re: Geared Steam Locomotives

I found the Shay photos more easily than I expected! Originally taken in 1983 on Agfa CT18 film with my OM-2SP, probably with the Zuiko 35-105 lens.

Re: Thornton Pickard 5x4" half-plate view camera?

You could try the UK Film and Darkroom User forum, there are a few members who dabble in such things I think.

Re: Lens recommendation

I have the 30mm Olympus macro lens, I haven't used it much but it seems pretty good. The working distance is short though so not so good for bugs etc - at least not live ones!
