Smile Severn Valley Railway

I can recommend a visit to the Severn Valley Railway. Its not just steam or diesel locomotives that might be of interest. The line is scenic with some picturesque stations and plenty to see. Can I also give a shout out here for some of the `Art` settings on the E-M1 Mark 2? They do not seem to get mentioned often but I think they are fun and creative (at least to this ex Pentax user!)

Re: Severn Valley Railway

Art settings are certainly fun for a while occasionally I'd agree with you but I'd rather have kept my really useful sunset setting I used that an awful lot more.
The Severn Valley Railway is brilliant though haven't been for ages thanks for reminding me.

I particularly like your B&W picture.
