About this event

London Camera Exchange along with Sony are excited to be bringing you another fantastic event along with the opportunity to test all the latest Sony Cameras and Lenses.

An opportunity to capture scenes inside the last Midland Roundhouse capturing scenes more reminiscent of 1960 than 2019.

Barrow Hill Roundhouse has a wealth of heritage and is last remaining roundhouse in the UK. The site of many past events this really is a wonderful location that really needs to be seen at night to appreciate its grandeur. Our evening will see us bring the current steam residents to life through the use of smoke and steam machines. With our proven techniques we defy you to not believe the iron horses are about to leave the shed and pull trains all over the Midlands.

Locos included will be Midland Half Cab, Butler Henderson and the J17.  

Our evening starting at around 17.00 will see us concentrating exclusively in the main shed all evening, closing the doors to keep the hall full of smoke and steam our period dressed loco crews, cleaners, fitters and a works foremen will act out the various different scenes that were once a common sight in every engine shed. We plan to finish around 22.00 which we feel will give everyone plenty of time in a relaxed way to fully capture all the scenes on offer.

This event is going to be limited to 25 photographers so ensure comfortable surroundings and easy use of tripods. We therefore recommend booking early to avoid disappointment, given how popular previous events at Didcot have been. So come and join us to capture the very essence of what this former Midland Roundhouse after dark has to offer.
