Travels with my new Camera.

The glorious late Autumn sunshine was a very good reason to visit the
Severn Valley Steam Railway, oh and I had purchased a new Camera.
For those interested I chose a tiny little Pentax Q10, that  can easily
be worn around my neck hidden under my Anorak....and yes I do wear
an Anorak when visiting a steam railway!

This was the view out of the carriage  window at Bridgnorth, the train viewed out of the window
is Metropolitan and is very old. In fact it used to pull trains in London on the
underground network.

I do like a Good Unimog!

The Unimog was designed and developed after the second World War by Mercedes Benz, originally
to be used in agriculture and forestry situations, over the years there have been many versions of this
huge oversize Tonka like truck including military applications. I came across this later version while out on the Norton one Friday afternoon after work.

Or if you cant afford to buy a real Unimog how about a Lego version with over 2000 parts.
After all the long nights are getting nearer and we all need a good project or two.
