On saturday it was my local Railway & Heritage societies fair here in the lovely Garw Valley, so as good local citizens we popped along (with my camera in tow).
I have never really had any interests in trains before but thanks to a great young guide called Stephen the tour of the railway shed was a very interesting way to spend a Saturday morning.
There was loads of stuff to point my camera at and luckily I took along the D600 as the light was pretty dim in places but the camera performed excellently at iso’s up to 4000 without a problem.

All the people involved with the running of the Railway society were very enthusiastic and helpful, eager to explain in detail what was going on and their plans for the future (and didn’t mind having their photographs taken either)
All in all it was an enjoyable time and nice to see something like this going on in the Garw Valley.

Some great stuff on here! Especially the photo of me 😉 particularly like the photo of Pamela’s wheel with the two shovels.
The photos tell a nice story. 🙂
Wonderful series of those great machines, and congrats to 100 posts! 🙂

I am glad you enjoyed the Open Day last year. The photos really are beautiful. very atmospheric. I am currently helping to promote the railway to the public so thought I would message you just to let you know that the Garw Valley Railway now have a facebook page:
More open days and events will be announced on that page, including updates to what the railway are doing as a few things have happened since your last visit such as the building of the platform. We welcome your next visit!
