My railway interest really started in 1972 when I went to school in York and was able to see the fantastic Deltic locomotives heading north on the express trains. After the Deltic's finished at the end of 1981 I soon got very keen on the railways in Germany with the last few years of the V200 locos, and then I really started exploring Europe and beyond. I always took photos of the trains I travelled with, mostly prints. In 2002 I started taking digital photos with the Nikon 5700 camera, I soon upgraded to the 8700 as technology improved. I then moved on to Canon EOS 300, then to EOS 5D but I'm not a fan of full frame. I therefore changed to a Canon EOS 7D, for my needs, nowadays I prefer to Canon EOS 7D Mk II with a L series 24-105 mm lens
