  1. Liverpool Lime Street is another level. That roof captured in your fantastic double page shot really is something else. I like the view of Dduallt above too. It's nice to see shots on here that were not in the magazine.

  2. Cheers! We always take lots of photos probably 4 or 5 times what's needed. And sometimes B&W/sepia makes a nice touch with suitable stuff like the streamliner LMS thing above.
