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: Geared Steam Locomotives

[QUOTE=Naughty Nigel;472067]I had heard of them but have never seen one. I don't think they were ever used on main lines in the UK; more in quarries, coal mines and suchlike, and I suspect the gears...

I suppose you steam buffs know all about these. The Shay is particularly impressive.

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Time to tone this thread down a bit, I feel. Please keep comments polite and respectful - and no analogies to Hitler, Nazis or Fascism, oblique or otherwise.

I'm trying to be ultra careful how I word this as I'm aware how sensitive a topic is being discussed in some recent posts.

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

Don McCullin

I’ve just finished watching a film on BBC4 about the great man. So inspirational hopefully it will be on iPlayer so that I can watch again. Highly recommended.

They didn’t make lenses...

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

I believe symmetrical lens designs could be quite high quality, many of them are still quite usable today (at least by those of use who don't obsess about sharpness)

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