Some B&W Images from my Mamiya 645

I think it was Ricoh who asked for a thread about steam locomotives. There is only one train in this thread (so far) but I have posted a small collection of photographs that I took around the old Stainmore line at Kirby Stephen.

All were shot using a Mamiya 645 Pro loaded with Ilford FP4+ rated at standard speed. Most were taken with the 'standard' 80 mm ƒ2.8 lens.

The final photograph is not mine, but was taken at the summit around 1935 showing a pair of Ivatt 4MT 2-6-0's waiting to depart with a westbound mineral train.

One of the joys of this line for train spotters was the long and very steep gradients, which meant that most trains were 'double headed', and were often helped by an uncoupled third 'banking engine' at the rear.
