Well over a year since I wrote anything here.
I’m not much of a writer so I tend to put off this chore, and as always, I have been super busy.
Of course, the world is now a very different place and we are all waiting for the “new normal”.
The company I work for has just declared that in the new world that working from home will be the default for all staff. I’d been trying to encourage them in that direction for years but it took a global pandemic to prove me right.
On the TOPticl scene there are now 53,000+ images on this website. I have also started a new project to try and find a picture of every BR diesel and electric loco in its various number identities. I am looking for the 1948 number, the D/E number and the TOPS number of every loco, where applicable. This is a private project as many of the images come from copyrighted sources, so I can’t share them here. But I would be interested to hear from anyone with a similar aim.
And as always I am always looking for collections to digitise. It is amazing how good the image taken from a negative or slide looks on a 60inch screen.
