May 2013: Railway Bridge repainted - I was concerned that the distinctive figured brown pattern of the railway bridge would be lost on repainting, so I was delighted to find it emerging from its protective wrap in fully lined-out GWR locomotive Brunswick green livery - an even more distinctive asset to the town and one which was regularly to feature in my railway photography. I developed a speciality in taking photos of trains crossing the bridge, easy sounding except that you get no visual warning of the approach. In the early days the back end of an HST was a do-able target if you count the carriages passing. Later on, the availability of real time railway maps on the internet gave me the vital information about when a train was imminently due. It was then just a matter of quick reflexes to get the front of a train.
