Barking at the Moon

66512 at Stranraer Town

Fiction comes in many forms and “what if’s” are a key part of many a story. Some stories become fact by default whilst others remain fiction. But some become embodied in the semi-reality of a computer simulation – a sort of half-way house between what has been, what is and what may yet come to pass. A Class 66 with an intermodal train at Stranraer under a raging moon surely fits in the realms of semi-real-fiction!

Lest We Forget

Sunday November 09th 2014 saw us recalling the centenary of the outbreak of World War One and remembering the dead of both world wars and numerous conflicts since. My Remembrance Sundays are usually centred around attending the service at my local church. Sometimes circumstances preclude this act of solidarity with those who gave all in defence of our freedoms – my son was ill in 2009 and we were in Barnet Hospital on that Sunday…It didn’t stop me attending the Remembrance Parade in Barnet though and capturing this image…

…This year I attended the Remembrance Parade at Euston Station – a little off my local area…

…So why was I at the Euston Remembrance Parade? Because Remembrance Sunday saw the first run of a steam locomotive out of the new St.Pancras Station and I felt that I should record the passage of the train through Kentish Town. I give you Royal Scot Class Locomotive 46115…

…Named ‘Scots Guardsman’, I think she was a fitting choice of locomotive for Remembrance Sunday :-) The 11th of November is officially Remembrance Day – Please try to find time to recall those who gave their lives for our freedoms as you go about your daily business.
