Toddington Steam

We attended an event earlier this year at Toddington Station in Gloucestershire, this has been rennovated and is well done and very real.

The event was well attended and fun despite some iffy weather.

The OMD handled it well and was a dream to use:

Same here but I am OK with these frames for some reason.

Looks like it was a great event.

Re: Toddington Steam

Yes, I've got to admit that at a second viewing, I can handle them.

Re: Toddington Steam

Thanks all,

It was a great day with lots to photograph and everyone was very friendly.

I always add frames to my website posts as often I think without they always give me the impression the poster has not finished/is unsure they are finished editing the image.

Borders are a purely personal preference very much in the eye of the beholder and for me they work 90% of the time and complete the image (Just my personal view and a leftover from my days of analogue exhibition printing).

Nice set, there is always great many of different images to be had at steam railways. I must say some are in my opinion candidates for B&W conversion.

I have to agree with you on that Derek but I shot them to help promote vintage and they preferred colour, just not got around to converting but there are definitely some especially those with old costumes.

I will get around to it soon..........I hope

Re: Toddington Steam

Wow, far more than just a steam event, a great show of authentic uniforms, civilian clothes, the station platform, the cars - even the children looked staight out of the 1940's. Do they do this every year?

Maybe they preferred colour because although it was available in the 1940's it was still in it's infancy and was an expensive novelty compared to B&W, which was still very much the norm. Colour would have been reserved for special occasions like this, which in a way makes it authentic!

Look forward to seeing some Silver Efex versions in due course!

Great set Ian, like the presentation and frames, it is just like stepping back in time, fantastic.

Good to see the hats and someone clenching a pipe between his teeth. Pity he wasn't smoking it but Photoshop could cure that!

Re: Toddington Steam

A really nice set, they have a vintage feel and it all looks real. I'd be chuffed with these if I'd taken them

Just tiny niggles for me... In 1. I'd get rid of the railway trespass sign. 3. I'd get rid of the cigarette bin and 7 I'd crop on the right ever so slightly to remove the person
