MARCH 2020 Quarterly Photo Gallery Entries

Post by philipy » Sat Jan 04, 2020 4:44 pm

Kjell has proposed that the theme for March 2020 will be:
«Winter on the Garden Railway»

As he says,"There is a few weeks left of the winter. Hopefully there be some white days before end of March 2020.
And if not - you may have some pictures taken in previous winters."

So please lets post your entries on this thread asap. Rules as before and all entries to be submitted before 15th March 2020.

Here is one from last year of the whole garden. Sent this in case I'm not able to get a proper photo before the spring. I close my railway late Autumn and let the winter do its worst.

Garden railway in Norway - feels like this, most of the year... ; :P

Great picture - although it makes me feels cold just looking at it!

Nice loco livery too...

Brilliant picture Andy. It sums up what most garden railways look like overall during the fastness of the worst Winter wearther. It's a cracker!

Cavok,

That's a very good picture. You clearly face challenges that are almost unheard of for us!

A picture from days long past. In 2006 the winter was very snowy. The tracks are laid on a compact pile of snow. The Regner Waldbahn No. 1 did its job well even in cold temperatures.

Beautiful country with some stunning railways - even if you have to dig down to find them. :lol:

I do like that Philip. It's a very 'real' shot. :thumbup:

Decided on different photo to the one just posted so removed it. Again, one from the archives as snow is a bit unpredictable these days.
