Added 9 January 2022 - Work Pictures (4-9 January 2022)
A selection of pictures taken while at work. All of these pictures were taken with permission and with due diligance to safety. Most of the pictures I have taken at work aren't really for this site, as most of them are technical pictures of things like couplings and handbrakes that I have taken for my own records and to assist my learning process, but the occasional nice 'standard' shot has presented itself.
