Taking possible subjects from Cee’s photo this week’s Midweek Madness Challenge, lets start with wagons. I can’t tell for certain if the one in the photo is a grain or bulk powder car, so I’ve picked a shot of Cement wagons…
…passing through Acton. These are empties that, having delivered a load for London’s construction industry, are on their way back to Hope in Derbyshire for their next load.
Ladders – Finchley’s Green Watch demonstrate using a ladder for a rescue at the annual station open day…
Finally, taking the slogan ‘we will deliver’ I remembered this truck…
… belonging to Stand & Deliver and appropriately carrying a Highwayman logo 😉
I really like the composition of that first image.
Thanks Amy 🙂 Sometimes a going-away shot works better… Despite the enthusiast preference for a shot of the loco leading the train 😉
Yeah, I think one of those things where the “rules” of what to photograph are a nice starting point, but sometimes an interesting story can be found elsewhere.
That’s true 🙂
Oh what perfect photos for you have for this week. 😀 😀
Thanks Cee 🙂
Congratulations! I have chosen your post to be featured in CMMC.
I hope you are having a terrific week.
Thanks very much Cee – you have a great week too! 🙂
I am having a great week. 😀
Good to hear 🙂
You have so much knowledge about transportation and vehicles, Martin. I have never even heard of a cement wagon! But, now I know!
I’m glad it was of interest Debra 🙂 Dry cement being a very fine powder, the wagons have a system to pump air into the cement to loosen the grains. If you look closely you can see a lot of pipework along the solebar of each wagon and a yellow valve for turning on the airflow.
