    I've seen some beautiful railroad photos on other threads, so I know there are some railfans here. My late mother in law was employed by the Pennsylvania Railroad, so a love of trains runs in my husband's family. I'm a beginner at this, so I don't have too many yet, but here are a couple of my photos to get started. Please share yours - photos of anything railway related are welcome here!

    This is one example of a series I shot last year about the "chemine de fer des 3 vallées" in Mariembourg, Belgium.
    We definitely plan going back there this year !

    The series can be found here :

    On the Settle to Carlisle line , heading south through the Eden valley near
    Armathwaite . I'm looking forward to the end of the month when the all new
    Tornado passes this way ! We still build new locomotives in the UK :2thumbs:
    Check out Tornado steam on youtube:smile:

    These were made in 2006 during "Dordt in stoom" (Dordrecht in steam, a biannual steam event in Dordrecht, The Netherlands) with the Nikon F3 and probably the 85/1.8.

    We need some threads where people use their gear, instead of talking about it:wink:

    This is the closest I have to a railroad picture. And it was not shot with a Micro 4/3 camera (although I used a Panasonic compact).

    Nice to see a different atmosphere than we're used to in Western Europe, thanks.

    Some film scans of an old steam locomotive taken a few weeks ago (hopefully you'll forgive the non m4/3-ness).
