BR Standard Class 5, 73050 City of Peterborough: detail of Walschaerts valve gear and mechanical lubricator. Thanks to ~greenbank for the info.

Nene Valley Railway, uk. I did not realise until I was taking these shots just how awesome steam trains are. I intend to go back and get some better shots soon. Therefore, any specific train related requests you have I am open to. No promises, but I'll do my best.

Download for full size :)

These are my guidelines for using my stock:
:bulletred:Comment on my stock image to let me know you have used it.
:bulletred:On your deviation put a link to the image of mine you have used.
:bulletred:You can use my stock for any purpose (dA prints, pre-made bgs, websites, etc.) except if you are going to be selling the finished image/item, in which case please ask first.
:bulletblue:I'd also appreciate a fav on any of the images you use, although this isn't a rule since we all have our own faving policies!

Love this.  I used it to model a pyrography piece but it lost some of the pop you captured in your shot.

Jeez, you are going to have to do better than "Train Gubbinz" if you want wider use of your stock photos!


This is a BR Standard Class 5, 73050 City of Peterborough: detail of Walschaerts valve gear and mechanical lubricator. We won't talk about steam reversers or inside-admission piston valves (both of which are also shown here), but both train buffs and picture editors will usually look for a technically accurate picture description.

I've never met anyone who can tell all that from this little shot! Thanks again :)

Almost anyone at the Nene Valley Railway could have said this much. The thing is that most people who are looking for pictures of "a steam engine" will have some technical terminology in mind when they do their search - particularly if they are looking for good-quality detail shots like this. I think it's also fair to say that steam enthusiasts will, as a matter of course, use search terms like "BR Standard Class 5" when looking for pics of their adored favourites - though I hasten to add that I'm no fan of the BR Standard designs!

Hi
I used your great stock here : [link]
Thanks a lot.

Just so you know, when I finish this new tarot project, I intend to have the deck published. Let me know if you're OK with it.

Yeah that is fine with me. It is a very unique tarot deck! :)

Thanks a lot! I hope you'll stay tuned for the rest of the deck.
