Wallyford Colliery Pit No 3: This two dimensional loco is in Wallyford, on a footpath that follows the line of the colliery sidings. It looks a bit like a Barclay 0-4-0ST, but I am not sure about the short tank that doesn't cover the firebox. 27th November 2020.

Lancaster Old Junction: It looks like DRS 66432 and 66422 were on RHTT duties before being used for the northbound 'Tesco' on 12th January 2021 and a low winter sun illuminates the filthy machines. Standing in for the more usual single Class 88 the pair drop down the bank towards Lancaster station. Photograph ancillary to a permitted exercise walk under Corona Virus legislation.

Monkton Combe: This very well kept and elegant bridge between Monkton Combe (left) and Limpley Stoke (right) - complete with a smaller arch for cattle to the right - is not easy to photograph, as you have to park in the canal wharf car park and brave traffic on a tight bend on a narrow road. Someone has to do it.

Lyne Viaduct: Lyne Viaduct seen from the south west in 1997. Since the photograph was taken the undergrowth has grown somewhat, a telephone pole erected and fence replaced by a dry stane dyke. It is a particularly fine viaduct with crosses carved deeply into the stonework, like that closer to Peebles ([[Neidpath Viaduct]]), presumably to keep a landowner happy.

Minehead: Minehead station, closed amid much local opposition in January 1971, seen here abandoned and derelict just 20 months later in September 1972 before its restoration and reopening as the terminus of the West Somerset Railway in 1976.

Cherry Tree: Northern 142044 arrives at Cherry Tree in July 2015 whilst on a Colne to Blackpool South service. This particular Pacer made its last revenue earning run in September 2019 and was delivered by road to Booths in South Yorkshire for scrapping three months later.
