Welcome to the form Jonathan! A good shot of one of the royal 67's.

Really like your username; the only better choice (entirely in my opinion of course) would be Hoover or Vac Deltic would come a close second for me though, that sound is utterly unique!

Hi all,

Just signed up to the forum as I've recently purchased as Panasonic S1, see:

After a month I'm now getting to grip with the camera after using my trusty Pentax K20D for 14 years, so here is my first contribution to this thread.


Thank you for the welcome. Just in case anyone thinks we are talking about domestic appliances we actually mean British Rail's English Electric Class 50s so called because they originally sounded like vacuum cleaners. And for comparison I've also attached a photograph of a Deltic, no less than my favourite one. Also built by English Electric both classes had similar bogies and a top speed of 100mph.

Lan, I'm also a great fan of Class 50s, too. I've actually been lucky enough to drive two of the locos depicted (50035 and 55022) on the Severn Valley Railway and have to admit that the 50 seemed easier and smoother to drive.
