I've been interested in railways since I was about three years old and this was compounded when my parents moved into a house which backed onto a railway when I was three. My interest has always been centred around the way railways operate and how they fit into the landscape. I have taken my fair share of the traditional three-quarter front views of locomotives but it is something I try to avoid.
