fotopic.net in liquidation

It's official, the recent outage of popular photo-hosting site fotopic.net is not a technical fault. Rather, the site is now in liquidation. Thankfully, my entire online photo collection was backed up and has been moved over to the companion photo gallery of this site.

fotopic.net was especially popular with transport photographers and the site's demise has meant the loss of a very valuable resource.

A busy day at Whitby


With the CN Kingston Sub reopened after the Cobourg derailment, traffic has been heavy as the back log is cleared. Here we see CN 8813 and CN 2554 stopped at Whitby while GO 604 arrives with an eastbound train.

CN Derailment Halts Traffic


Due to the CN derailment near Cobourg on 27 March, traffic was halted on the CN Kingston Sub for three days. As a result, CN 2554 and 8813 are seen sitting at Whitby on 29 March, waiting for the line to reopen.

More information on the derailment can be found here.

A photo to begin with


This is a first post to highlight the new format for posting images. When a new image is uploaded to the Picasa archive, I will also post it here. Remember, the archive is far more extensive than what is being posted here.

To start, here is a shot of Hogwarts Express at the National Railway Museum on a less than ideal shooting day!

My second book is published


To bring this website up to date, my second book was published late last year. For more details, click here.
