Alan's Railway Photo AlbumYou are looking at a collection of railway photos that I have been taking since about 2005. If you are interested in aviation, you might like to visit www.english-for-flyaways.de too.
I have upgraded to a Nikon D7000 with a Tamron 28-75, Tamron 18-250 and Nikon 70-300, and to enable me to use older lenses, mainly a 50 and 105 mm AF.
I tend to concentrate on locomotives and rolling stock and am happy to leave landscapes to those that way inclined.

Copyright of all photos is mine, with or without copyright note, so please take note, and contact me for any requirements at atb1943(at)gmail.com

The site does not allow any input or registration, when I tried that it opened up the floodgates for all sorts of advertising and other rubbish. Hope you understand. Thank you for your interest and see you perhaps at the trackside.

Trip Reports (Germany)Trip Reports I would define as irregular travel to a location quite a distance away from home in Frankfurt. If it's a location that I travel to often, it may end up under the parent category Alan's Railway Photo Album as an 'area' sighting.

ImpressumYou are looking at a collection of railway photos that I have been taking over the last few decades. You may have noticed however, that there has been little activity here of late, since the requirement to reduce the size of each photograph is too time-consuming. My latest efforts you will find on Flickr under hayling_billy.

I currently use a Nikon D750 with a Nikkor 24-120 and a Nikon 70-300. I also have older Nikon 7200 which took over from a D90.

Copyright of all photos is mine, with or without copyright note, so please take note, and contact me for any requirements at atb1943(at)gmail.com

The site does not allow any input or registration. When I tried that it opened up the floodgates for all sorts of ads and other rubbish.
If you are interested in railways (mainly German), you might like to visit www.english-for-railaways.de too, but again, the more recent stuff is on flickr. I can be contacted at atb1943(at)gmail.com

Thank you for your interest and I hope you enjoy my efforts!
