A steaming day out

Three TPS members attended an outing on Sunday 31st October, to the Bluebell Railway for their Giants of Steam gala weekend.

We caught the first train out of East Grinstead at 10:15, and then alighted at Horsted Keynes to spend some time photographing the passing trains. Then it was onto the next train to Sheffield Park, to wander around the station and train sheds looking for photo opportunities. After a lunch in the station bar/cafe, we then went back to Horsted Keynes for some more track photography in the afternoon sun.  A lovely leisurely day out, and who knows, maybe a few competition images in there.

Here’s a very brief sample of our pictures:
