Ford Edsel



The hubcap of the Edsel still needs a small touch-up

I used to maintain, fire and drive steam engines at the Museum Buurtspoorweg between Haaksbergen and Boekelo from 1971 until 1992 after which I unfortunately had to stop that hobby.

But I still go there and check out periodically how they are doing and catch up with the people I still know there. Here's a photo from 2009 with SS 657 "The Frog" pulling out of the station in Bad Boekelo


Sony A700 + 18-250

After a major overhaul the engine is now painted in darker green and renumbered NS 8107 to reflect how it looked after the two largest private raiway companies (HSM and SS) merged and became NS. I still need to go and check it out, but COVID makes that difficult at the moment.

I've only been to Brands Hatch (near London) once (April 2018) to witness a "training day", which is good because it brings out a large diversity of cars.

I've posted before from that day but here's a few new ones I pulled from the vaults (a favourite COVID pastime)

1: An oldie



2: A big mean Porsche



3: A slightly smaller Porsche



4: # 72


1+2: Sony A7ii + LA-EA4 + Minolta 85/1.4 G
3+4: Sony A6000 + FE70-300 G
