Day #3932Title: Drive The Train
Location: Newcastle Metro, Approaching Chillingham Road, Newcastle Upon Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I had a very enjoyable day displaying my LEGO models at Discovery Brick Show today. After the show closed I met up with Alistair (who had been busy elsewhere during the day) and we enjoyed a lovely social with the other folks – first bowling and then dinner. So it was quite late by the time we made our way back home on the Metro. But one advantage is nobody was sitting in the front seats next to the driver’s cab, so we got a good view – and it always makes me feel like I’m driving the train! Anyway, makes a perfect shot for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 10, Long Exposure.

Day #3867Title: Monorail Prototype
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I want to make my own custom LEGO monorail trains for my city. This is a mock up of one of the carriages on the tracks. I like the colour scheme and think it will be fairly easy to build, I just need the parts in the right quantity.

Notes: A new LEGO Cargo Train (set 60052) has arrived, along with Ed the Engineer to do the driving. Let’s have some fun on the rails. I made a video of its first outing. Toot! Toot!

Day #3774

Day #3774Title: Home Time
Location: Westminster, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I get a bit frustrated with the Circle Line in the evening. I can wait 20-odd minutes for a service at Westminster, while 7 or 8 District Line trains flash past, crammed with commuters. If I time it wrong, it can mean almost a 2-hour trip home if I just miss a mainline train at Liverpool Street. They are usually every half hour but in the early evening there is a 40-minute gap. Anyway, today it all came together and I managed to get the earlier train I was aiming for. I made this while waiting (thankfully just 5 minutes) at Westminster tube station.

Notes: Another trip to London was on the cards today, for an evening event. I was busy for most of the day so managed to find this shot as I waited for my train. A good find for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 14, Transport.
