    Re: Planes, Trains and Automobiles

    I went to Silverstone today to Time & Sign at a big historic car event for my friend in his Alfa Romeo
    (no time for me to take photographs ).

    He did really well and finished 2nd out of a large field,
    but I can't help feeling that he would have done much better if he'd lose
    the weight and drag of that BMW .

    Very good, I like that. I really like those old "boatnose" BMWs. Is that what they are called? Funny, I was never a BMW guy and I get a lot of grief from my Tesla-owning cousin, but somehow I ended up with 2 BMWs, 335d and e86 Z4M Coupe. I love the old 507 and the Z8 as well as the old M3s and original M5s. Funny how this kind of stuff sneaks up on us.

    The modified Antwerp railway station has dug 3 levels deep (with tracks) into the ground. It used to be a terminus type station, but at the lowest level they dug a tunnel under the "closed end", so now some trains can go through the station without changing direction.

    This is a view on the lowest level, which is mostly used for express and international trains (mostly the line Amsterdam - Brussels - Paris)

    Re: Planes, Trains and Automobiles

    May 1 there is always a classic car rally in our town. When you go early enough (before the arrival of all cars) the crowds are manageble to get some decent shots. In the afternoon all you would see is people's backsides


    1: Triumph TR3



    2: Ausin Healey



    3: Chevrolet Corvette



    4: VW "mountainvan" (with some other participants arriving in the background)



    5: And not a plane, train or automobile, but an interesting looking Triumph anyway

    That's an old favourite, and a very cool photo of it too. Boy, how I wished my father bought one of those instead of his boring Volkswagens. I'm sure he was happy he didn't though

    MBS #6 "Magda" taking water in Haaksbergen (Netherlands). It's a small 22 ton 040 built by La Meuse in Belgium and painted in original NCS livery.

    In the background you can see # 7853 "Navizence", which didn't do service that day but was just towed out for display.

    NS 7853 (MBS 8) "Navizence" departing Haaksbergen


    A850 + Tamron 28-200 XR


    The numbering/livery of this engine is actually a special story. In 1945 the Dutch Railways (NS) bought two of the same engines (Winterthur "Tigerli") from the Swiss railways and numbered them 7851 and 7852. They were mainly used for shunt duties in the Rotterdam harbour. After several years of service both were demolished.

    Many years later the MBS was able to buy this one, restored it and made it look like how the two original ones did their service in the Netherlands after the war and gave it # 7853, as if it was the third in the series that was sold to the NS.

    There's indeed plenty similarities between these two small types engines, but there's some differences as well like the SS 657 (NS 8107) has side water tanks and a Walschaerts steam distribution. I just love all these small loco's and used to fire and drive them until about 27 years ago when we moved out of the country

    I don't know exactly how many BAVARIAN DVI lokos existed , but almost all of them had major or minor modifications . And they all had an ALAN steam distribution . That loko , no matter which modifications were done , is my beloved loko .
    I have built 4 machines myself in scale HO , all different modifications .
    And I have 2 models from MICRO METAKIT , handmade , and also one in gauge 0 . Unfortunately in black . Do you still drive these small machines ? ? ?

    I guess the Bavarian DVI is a bit like the German T3, built with an almost infinite number of variations by different factories.

    My dad was a model railroader as well and has built a few English and Dutch smaller steam locomotives, among them a LB&SCR Terrier and a Dutch series 1900. They're still in the family, allthough just shown in a cabinet and no longer running.

    I stopped firing and driving museum engines (scale 1:1 model railroad ) when we moved to the US in 1993 and when we came back we moved to Belgium, so I now live too far from the museum line. Also 3 growing kids, busy family and job made it impractical to continue this passion.

    Here you can see me driving MBS #4 (Former Kleinbahn Delmenhorst-Harpstedt 353, Hanomag 1925) back to Haaksbergen somewhere in the late 80's

    Very nice Pieter .
    A white shirt and a tie is the perfect outfit for a steam engine machinist . .
    The prussian T3 is also a very much liked little machine . What a pitty , that you don't drive these "jewels" any more .
    All my models (about 90) are in a glass cabinets as are my 16 HASSELBLADs .
    And I talk to my cameras . Am I nuts ? ? ?

    Thanks Jürgen, but actually the outfit is pretty close to how drivers were dressed at the Dutch railways in the late 1930's.

    Only two things missing, the cap and a black manchester/corduroy jacket (with polished brass buttons). However on warmer days the fire and boiler were hot enough to not need the jacket. Probably driving in colder weather at higher speeds it was very welcome while hanging out of the cab, but I hardly used mine in all the years I was doing duty on these engines.

    Another blast from the past, the SS 657 at the 150 years jubileum of the Dutch Railways in Utrecht, I'm again hanging out, this time with the cap on (with the gold ring around the top showing me as a qualified driver). I'm standing on the fireman side, so probably he is driving at this moment.

    I paid another visit to the Museum Buurtspoorweg in Haaksbergen, where I used to be part of the team until 1993. Still knew quite a few people so we could chat up on old times:


    Engine # 6 "Magda" entering Haaksbergen with a train from Boekelo:



    Same engine, waiting along platform #2 for further action (which was back to the shed due to the very hot weather of ~38 degrees C that day)



    Shunting with a small Diesel from the "Sik" series (NS 259, built by Werkspoor Amsterdam in 1936)

    Re: Planes, Trains and Automobiles

    Here is a now classic American car that is often regarded as the epitome of the late 1950s "big fins" style. I was surprised to see it at a recent Anchorage car show (the 41st Annual Jay Ofsthun Show and Shine). The sheer length of this car was amazing. Of course, the pictures do not do it justice.

    Nikon Df with the 50mm f1.8G "Special Edition" ;-) lens. I really do like the look of images from this camera/sensor.

    Here is another from the same car show. This photo is one of my favorites from that day. Also shot with the Df etc.

    A quick snap I took a while ago of my friend's beautiful MV with my Epson R-d1 and Noctilux.

    Re: Planes, Trains and Automobiles

    Last weekend I was at the Laguna Seca track in Monterey, California to see the IndyCAR Firestone Grand Prix. The main event was the final IndyCAR race of 2019. There were also 2019 season final races for three other "Road to Indy" open wheel series, plus the Mazda MX5 Cup and Porsche GT3 Cup races. The weather was sunny and warm (very hot on Saturday...track temps of +100 degrees). The racing was loud and raw (hearing protection advisable). I took more photos with the Olympus E-M1X and 40-150/2.8 lens than I've ever taken at similar events with other cameras before (+1500 images over a 3 day period). I started to go thru them tonight and it seems that few of my photos really captured the visceral and raw experience I remember.

    I decided to take one image and process it in a way that might reflect (for me) a bit more of the raw beauty, force and agility of these cars.

    None of the photos I took could capture the sounds.

    One more processed with a similar intent.

    IndyCars exiting Turn 5 at Laguna Seca.

    E-M1X and the 40-150/2.8 lens. This camera/lens was never a limiting factor for me.

    Re: Planes, Trains and Automobiles

    On our way back from the isle of Skye we visited the Glenfinnan viaduct to catch "The Jacobite" steamtrain running between Fort William and Mallaig, also known as the "Harry Potter train"


    Black Five "The Lancashire Fusilier" #45407 running tender first back to Fort William



    Unfortunately no sound with this second photo, and too warm to see much steam, but the sound of the engine starting to climb the gradient after the viaduct was surely impressive



    And an emulation how a post card from the time this engine was built might have looked
