I did eventually track down a working Nikon F-601 (after the last one I bought expired after less than one roll…) and this image is from the first film put through it.

This Nissen hut (or at the least the remains of it) stands beside the the High Peak Trail near Cromford in Derbyshire… A lovely place to have a wander with a camera (or two).

Throwback Thursday… Peak Rail

Fujifilm X-E1, Fujinon XF 18-55mm f2.8~4 R LM OIS at 55mm, 1/125s, f8, ISO 320

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Seven years ago it was Peak Rail in Derbyshire.

LORD PHIL (built by the Hunslet Engine Co Ltd for the War Department in 1943) was in charge of passenger services and had no problems handling a five coach train.

This Midland Railway wagon was looking every bit its almost hundred years age though… ‘For Internal Use Only’ refers to a vehicle not allowed out onto the main line but still used in an industrial location.

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Seven years ago it was this peeling paint on the wall of a partially demolished factory… There are some rather swish townhouses on the site now…
