Welcome to my new-look smugmug site. Most of my photography nowadays is from locations near to home, in & around Nottinghamshire, especially the Robin Hood Line, and the remaining stretch of the former Lancashire Derbyshire & East Coast Railway which is now just a branch from Shirebrook, which sees coal trains from Thoresby colliery (sadly not for much longer though), plus traffic heading to and from the High Marnham Test Track, which stretches from Thoresby colliery junction through to the end of the line at High Marnham,. I often visit quieter locations, so there will be a few here that don't get photographed very often. I do not add a date to any captions, for ease of identification the file numbers are displayed at the front of the caption. The first six digits of the file number are the date, backwards, the first two digits are - the year, the next two - the month, follwowed by two for - the day. The final three digits are the individual file numbers for that day. Note, images uploaded from August 2012 will have the date displayed in the bottom left hand corner. Keywords___ most photo's are given at least 3 keywords, such as 'location', 'loco class', 'operating company', a list of these is displayed lower down the page, just left-click on any you want to view. Due to image theft I now only upload small file sizes, but all photo's (from June 2006) are taken with canon DSLR's & are shot in raw format & at the largest size possible. If anyone is interested in using any of my photo's, either commercially or otherwise, or would like to purchase some prints, then please feel free to contact me. Please remember though that all the Images on this site are copyright of the site owner. I hope you enjoy looking at these photgraphs as much as I enjoy taking them, comments are welcome, there is a comments box below each photo,  thanks for looking, Derek Wilson
