    In the good old days , with my analogue camara, I worked a little bit with speed-feeling, using long exposure-time. And also manipulate a little bit in the dark-room, using my hands to get the background blury. So I figured out you have used quite long exposure-time here. I also experimented a bit using zoom DURING the exposure. So I wondered if you actually used an active zoom during the exact exposure-time????????
    Actually, that's almost the same thing that I've done here. Exposure time time, and some manipulation in the computer. The afterwards manipulations are veeery minor, I have adjusted the colors a bit, and I have chosen not to apply any sharpening etc. afterwards.
    That zooming during exposuree is of course usable, but I think that it could be hard to combine together with moving stuff.

    I've attended courses and got a license to run huge boilers. Wonder if I could've run a steam train...? Think NOT.

    Also love your details and up close pictures much, and looking at the interior of that station is like being put back in time. Must have been strange to step inside.
    Thank you Svein.
    I'm been talking a bit with the people running the locomotives. They say that you need to know how the railroad stretch looks like to be able to run the boiler. There's a need to put in some extra coals before climbings etc. to keep up speed.

    Yes,it is a bit of an old oasis to walk around in the station surroundings, quite nice actually.

      Oh, goodie... lots of new additions to this wonderful thread.

      Great photography...I must admit I particularly loved the Volvo-train....

            The locomotive "Hamra" is cooling down after a day of duties.


            Anyone interested in making a locomotive of this again?

                  A refurbished boiler to the locomotive "Virå". The work was done at Hatch Heritage Steam Engineering in Swindon UK.

                    Fantastic Tommi. A spectacular collection of images, especially the night-time ones, they're so atmospheric.

                    Re Hatch Steam Engineers, that's interesting. Colin Hatch set up the business years ago, based on the tradition of steam engineering in Swindon and family connections. Today they're a successful little business doing all sorts of things with Traction Engines and Steam Locos. I believe that this is no mean feat due to the regulations around boiler safety.

                    There was a recent BBC series presented by the 'Hairy Bikers', Si King and Dave Myers, more famous for cooking (Hairy Bakers) than for industrial heritage, but one of their programmes had a good long segment at Hatch's, really gave a good idea of what they do. I doubt very much that the BBC's iPlayer works from abroad, but I'm sure that it'll be on BBC World before too long.
                    Cheers,

                    Mark.

                      Great to be back on the train again
                      Specially love #33/2 and the “pakarang view” in #33/4.
                      Then there’s the mood and lighting of #36/3, and the nostalgic period feel captured in #37/3 and 4.

                          They are happy to have such a wonderful photo reporter, aren't they? This is really great. Wonderful, Tommi. If there will be an anniversary you should make a book together with them. Or a yearly calendar??

                            Now when winter is getting closer the activities have mostly moved inside.



                            Now, what on earth does a loom have to do with trains?

                              This is how it goes:




                              And voila:

                                Of course, there are more traditional train stuff around the place:




                                Buckets for all uses.
