Monochrome Monday… Turntable

Turntable, February 2018Turntable, February 2018
Pentax MZ-30 + 35-80mm f/4~5.6 FA at 35mm – 1/180s, f8, – Kodak T400CN

Another shot from the Midland Railway-Butterley in Derbyshire, this time taken on my last roll of the much missed Kodak T400CN film.

The turntable was used to turn steam locomotives at Chinley railway station (also in Derbyshire) and is a 60ft diameter, hand-operated type built by the Midland Railway. It was dismantled in 1973 and stored for a number of years before arriving at the MR-B’s Swanwick Junction site in 1981. Sadly, 37 years later it is still awaiting reconstruction…
