100 Black & White Photos (Part 1)

100 Black & White Photos (Part 1) is the first of two special issues of South African Railways Illustrated, which will each contain a selection of 50 black & white photo conversions from my own personal railway photography collection. The vast majority of them were taken in poor lighting / cloudy conditions, and in many cases my own basic lack of skill & experience is to blame for their technical issues. They do however remain favourites of mine and wonderful reminders of the tremendous enjoyment and immense pleasure that I’ve experienced while out trainspotting at the various locations. Hope you enjoy the photos! Charles Baker Front Cover Inside Front Inside Back Back Cover
