Struggled to justify buying a new camera Tilly. A friend said he kmew someone with a useful philosophy on such matters,

'Take care of the luxuries and the necessities will take care of themselves'.

So a new camera it was.

Hoping Santa got my letter and brings me a new boiler...... CoolWink

I've just seen a sort of 3D simulation of the railway between Crossgates and Wetherby, I have to say I'm suitably impressed.

The aerial view of Pendas station as it was can be seen here

The rest of this line is in this set here

I'm also very impressed. They cannot have been easy to produce. Well worth looking through all of the set.

PS I like the 'Scarcroft lane bridge 181211. Phill.D has taken a view of this bridge!'. That bridge and its deep cutting is well worth a visit. It is a bit wet in parts at the Bardsey side of the old rail track and progress on the Thorner side of the bridge is however blocked, or it was when I was last there a year or two back).    


My photo of the bridge is here

It's certainly a lot more overgrown down there these days than on the 3D simulation.



I thought (hope Regular Smiley ) this photo may be of interest as it shows the blocked old rail track very near the Thorner side of the bridge. I don't know if it was deliberately blocked at some stage or just a natural landslip. The photo was taken on June 5 2009.

I think that's a landslip from what I've seen Leodian.

It's served me well Tilly, I've had it since early 2007, the lens is now taped on to make sure it grabs focus, but that's not surprising as it's been in some pretty hospitable places, and it's been dropped on the floor more times than I dare to remember.

I've just looked how many photos it's taken on the exif data, the shutters been clicked a whopping 59987 times... wow Regular Smiley

Thanks Tilly. A Nikon has been a dream for many years, certainly since I out grew the pleasure of having had the use of a Rollie TLR, but it has always seemed a lot of pennies with plenty of other places and children requiring a share. Got a good deal though on the D5100Regular Smiley
