65002 Returning Home

This is 62005 returning to Fort William – crossing the swing bridge at Neptune’s Staircase on the best day I have ever witnessed in Lochaber. Ben Nevis in the background is devoid of snow with the North Face cast in shadow. I have several shots of 62005 resplendent in late evening sun so keep watching also some crackers from Loch Moidart – enjoy


  1. One thing I like as much as lighthouses is train journeys, especially on an old train like this one, great shot Scott.

    1. I was very lucky Rigmover I was set up to shoot the bridge and I heard the train whistle – which meant I could concentrate on the position rather than focus.

    1. Yes real character – the bridge it is crossing is the start of Neptune’s staircase a lock system of 8 locks over a distance of 1/2 a Km dropping some 64ft – takes nearly 90 mins to proceed through it šŸ™‚

    1. I love how everyone looks subtly differently at each shot we are looking at the same subjects in different ways – one of the reasons I love photography

    1. Yes thinking about it Robert this is more your type of shot than you would normally see from me – although your rolling stock is not as kindly cared for as this beauty is

      1. Yes certainly…but just as your photo work is not the type I do – we can still appreciate the art and the beauty of the subject which is captured by the photographer.
