About this eventJoin us for an afternoon and evening of photography at the Great Central Railway featuring BR Steam plus road transport and re-enactors. Our event will begin at 4pm and will continue until after dark with a mixture of natural light scenes and, later on, cameos lit by LED lighting, finishing up at 8.30pm.
As evening turns to dusk, we will enhance scenes using our LED lighting which will give us more opportunities after dark. We will have use of a BR liveried Steam Engine until 20.30 and we will be able to shunt wagons around the yard, pose the loco with a a number of other road vehicles and set up many other scenes before the engine returns to shed at Loughborough. In addition to the yard we will also be offering station scenes with passengers and porters. Expect lots of cameo scenes using many of the trappings one would have seen at railway stations and goods yards up until the early 1960s with uniformed working staff loading and unloading wagons, shunting and generally making themselves busy around the local station and good yard.
The charter will be helping to raise funds for the Quorn Wagon & Wagon Group and will assist the restoration and maintenance of wagons which are used on our charters. The event is limited to a maximum of thirty photographers. It is a different kind of event to those we have previously held at the GCR and will present many opportunities to capture scenes reminiscent of the British steam era.
