Afternoon Milk Arrives at Combwich

Highbridge's Johnson 1P 4-4-0 No. 58086 glides past Combwich signal box with an afternoon service from Templecombe. The 6 wheeled milk tank was probably picked up from Bason Bridge.

To celebrate its 30th birthday, Combwich will next be shown at Wycrail Saturday 6 November 2010 - find out more!

  1. After days of discovering your blog I'm still amazed how realistic the photos are. The models really look like real. But how do you add certain effects? The sky is clearly done with Photoshop (or something like that). What about the steam and smoke? Also post-added or do the locos actually produce it?

  2. On Catcott the background really is there http://www.nevardmedia5.fotopic.net/p57399245.html with others it's addded as a separate layer. Smoke effects are using the 'Clouds' filter in Photoshop (see the Adobe site for more info)

  4. Where did you get or how did you make that nice cloudy bent background which is behind the model? I mean the interior of the "box" inside which you photograph the model (shown in the picture in your comment). I just assembled my first H0 scale locomotive model and I wish to take some photos of it. Such a background would be nice.
