Photos of Phones and Phonographs (occasionally)

Railway afternoon


I only managed an afternoon at the railway today because I spent all morning waiting for the Vet to phone me to say if Penny was ready to come home yet.  I got the call at 1pm and between the two of us, the vet and I decided it was best if she stayed in for another 24 hours.  It sounds like she’s picked up some sort of virus (they’re testing for FIV just in case.  I *really* hope it’s not that, or she’ll be sick on and off for years.)


We had quite a productive day of it really.  I tidied up a lot of the asterisk config in the morning, and we replaced a phone on one of the level crossings in the afternoon (That’s what Ian is doing in the picture above)  That’s finally ticked a job off the list which we started back in November (I think) – we also made a successful end to end test of a signal post phone, so we’re confident that it’s OK to go into service.

Tonight, I’m supposed to be going to a B3ta bash.  I’m not sure quite how long I’m going to stay for, but it’ll be better to be out of the house than wandering around it missing the cat.

    I love the first picture! I’ve looked at it 4 times now. Fantastic composition, and your treatment of the black & white tonal range is great. Jealous of the location!

    Hope Penny is feeling better soon.
