Midland Railway June 1893
Sony α100, Sony DT 18-70mm f3.5-5.6 at 50mm, 1/160s, f6.3, ISO 800
What was I photographing on this day in previous years?
Fifteen years ago it was some of the artifacts at the Midland Railway-Butterley
This cast iron sign, cracked and rusting, had clearly seen better days… mind you, I doubt I’d look as good at 114 years old! 😂
Definitely Third Class!

I recently found an old hard drive lurking in a drawer and on it were some images that I took in 2007 using a Sony α100 that had been a prize in a ‘first name out of the hat’ competition in a photography magazine.
I was using a Nikon D200 at the time and after taking a couple of hundred images with the Sony I passed it on to my wife (who didn’t get on with it at all and traded it in for a Nikon D80 a few months later if memory serves me…)
The above image is of a door belonging to a London, Midland & Scottish Railway Third Sleeper carriage that was awaiting scrapping at the Midland Railway-Butterley in Derbyshire.
