photoblog image The train now standing....

The train now standing....


.... on platform 5 of Preston Station is the 12.44 to Glasgow Central, operated by Virgin Trains.

Yesterday I had to pick some-one up from Preston, so naturally I take my camera and look for a few pictures.  It is not really the train that attracts me here, it is after all a boring Pendelino, but the ironworks in the Train Shed at Preston.

Some great lines, especially the diagonals of the train, rails and platforms.
Les Auld: Thanks for the comment Louis, appreciate it.
I agree with Louis, all the lines of the trainshed and the shape of the train make this a very attractive picture Les. We don't get to see these over this way I don't think.
Les Auld: It does seem to work well together Brian, thanks for the comment.
Just think though Les in years to come someone will be trying to preserve this. nice roof
Les Auld: Maybe Bill, if slam door EMUs can reach preservation then perhaps Pendelinos will as well, thanks for the comment.

You've worked this picture really nicely, the lines and girders look three dimensional
Les Auld: Thanks Ellie, a touch of HDR and Topaz Adjust to get the effect.
