Trains and Planes

I managed to get to Ellington Park for some pictures if the miniature trains, while I was there a plane came over fairly low and managed to get a few pictures of that too not very good as I was shooting into the sun and there were a lot of trees in the way.

18 to 55 mm zoom on a 35 mm camera to give you some idea i.e. zoomed right in it’s about a standard camera lens on a cheap camera that doesn’t have zoom.

It does help to illustrate that these planes fly fairly low over the town I am afraid that very seldom have a camera in hand when they come over, but I will endeavour to get some better ones.

Click here for the pictures I will endeavour to go through and delete the worst of them sometime.

Below the train timetable.

  1. Does the Cuncil still charge the railway club an exorbitant rental on the line in Ellington Park? My children used to love the trains, but they stopped using the park for years because of the stupid costs imposed by TDC. I'm assuming that this situation has now been resolved through the application of some common sense?

  2. Maybe the council still charge a high rent, but give a grant to pay for it. That way they can tick two boxes instead of none!

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
