Revamp and additions to Buses Gallery

Posted by DjI

As promised, there have been additions/changes to the Buses section of the site. Its name has been changed to "Buses and Trams", because one of the new galleries features pictures of Lisbon's iconic heritage trams. The other new gallery includes pictures of the bus scene in 2016 and 2017, as well as the odd tram. This galllery will develop as I take pictures. At this stage, it won't be updated as frequently as its equivalent in the Railways section, and don't expect to see many 'corporate' liveries from the big bus groups. My intention is to include different and branded liveries. Also, there has been a small addition to the 2017 Railways Gallery


August Update

Posted by DjI

Several pictures from July and early August, plus some from a trip to Lisbon in May 2017, which I had forgotten to upload, all added to the 2017 Railway Pictures gallery.


At last! An update!

Posted by DjI

I can finally offer one of the promised updates. Several pictures, going back to mid May 2017, added to the 2017 Railway Pictures gallery.


Update update

Posted by DjI

Not too many pictures being added at the moment because of the beautiful weather being experienced in this part of the world, which is not condusive to sitting in front of a PC editing photos. Fear not, updates will be coming soon, and they will be varied, with Trains (of course), Trams from Lisbon, and....Buses. Yes! After not taking bus photographs for many a year, I have dipped my toe back into the water. So, a whole new Gallery in the Buses section of the website will appear; just as soon as I get back to editing and uploading. Keep watching!!


May Update

Posted by DjI

Another update to the 2017 Railway gallery. Pictures from a trip to the West Midlands, local pictures, and several shots from the CPRR 2017 Diesel Gala. The latter includes stock moves before and after the event.

I have now uploaded all the pictures from my recent visit to India on Ffestiniog Travel's excellent "Indian Hill Railways" Tour. You will find them all in the "India 2017" gallery within the Railways section of the website. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as we enjoyed the holiday.


Easter Update

Posted by DjI

Some pictures of freight, passenger, and the NMT HST, all taken in the Derbyshire area on Good Friday and Easter Saturday. Also, the India pictures are starting to dribble onto the site. It will take a while for the gallery of these to be fully uploaded.

An update to the 2017 Railway gallery. Some pictures from a photo session on the GWML at Hanwell, and a few of a recent excursion utilising a Chiltern Railways "Bubble Car". Finally, a rainbow liveried Class 66 at Princes Risborough.


If you're wondering where those photos of my trip to India have got to? Sorry, sorting and editing them is taken longer than anticipated, but, they will be on here fairly soon.


March update

I hadn't updated for a while, as I have been out of the UK on an exciting railway trip (see below). Now, a small update of pictures from Devon and Bucks in the 2017 Railway gallery.


COMING SOON!! I have recently been away on Ffestiniog Travel's excellent "Indian Hill Railways " tour. Lots of pictures taken on India's railways; broad gauge and narrow gauge. A new gallery will be posted once I have sorted through the pictures and prepared them.

First update of 2016

Posted by DjI

Sadly, it has taken me longer than expected, but a new gallery, "2016 Pictures" has finally been added in the Railways section. A selection of pictures, which are all from either, my local area, or, east Kent are now uploaded.


Welcome to 2016

Posted by DjI

djipix.com enters another year. As soon as I get out there taking photos a "2016 Pictures" gallery will appear. I have also resolved to scan a few more slides, so that I can, both, add to existing galleries, and, start some new ones. The Bus side of the site hasn't seen to many new photos for a while, so, maybe, that is the place to start. Watch this space!!


HAPPY CHRISTMAS

Posted by DjI

A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL. I HOPE THAT YOU HAVE A GREAT TIME, WHEREVER OR HOWEVER YOU SPEND THE FESTIVE PERIOD

All back to normal!!

Posted by DjI

All the gallery headers in the Railways section have now been restored, so the site is fixed and back to normal. A big thank you to Webmeister Richard for rescuing the website and putting everything back the way it should be. In honour of his great work, the Author's Choice picture is one that he took, back in 2000, when he was 12 years old, on our first family trip to the US.


Update: Local Rail Pictures

Posted by DjI

There were some interesting trains around in the Princes Risborough over the weekend of 7th/8th November. Sadly, the weather wasn't very good, but some photos were taken, and they have been added to the "2015 Pictures" section of the Railway gallery. Don't be put off by the error message, or, the lack of header photos in the Rail gallery; everything works.


Ciao! Another Update!!

Posted by DjI

We're on a roll now!! The promised gallery of railway photos from a trip to Italy this summer has now been added. Ignore the error message and lack of gallery header photos in the Railways section; the links all work. Hopefully, these small issues will soon be fixed.


Finally......an Update!!

Posted by DjI

Things still aren't quite as they should be with the site, but, an update has been added. The "2015 Pictures" gallery in the Railways section is now bang up to date. It even includes pictures from today, showing trains on the first day of Chiltern Railways' new link to Oxford at Bicester. There is also a variety of pictures going right back to early June, including the the soon to be gone semaphores at Barnetby. Look out for a new Rail gallery with pictures from Italy - coming soon!


We're getting there!!

Posted by DjI

Following the recent website hiatus (see earlier Blog posts), Webmaster Richard has done a magnificent job in restoring the lost Railway galleries. This includes the "GW & GC Jt Railway" gallery that disappeared some time back. The gallery headers need to be restored, but the pictures are all now available for your enjoyment. I'm hoping to start adding updates soon.


Houston we have a problem..........

Posted by DjI

Maybe not as dramatic as Apollo 13, but this website has had a major technical hitch. Somehow (possible wetware malfunction....), the 'Rail' gallery and all its pictures have disappeared. The genius that is my Webmaster is trying to get them back. Please bear with us while he does, and, hopefully, those promised updates will soon be here.


UPDATES ARE COMING!!

Posted by DjI

It's been a while since the site was updated with new pictures. I have been taking plenty over recent months and weeks, and they will soon start appearing. There will be updates to the "2015 Pictures" gallery and there will be a new gallery with railwaay pictures from a recent holiday in Italy. Watch this space!!

Update: March 2015 (Dawlish: One year on)

Posted by DjI

Just over a year since the dramatic collapse of the railway along the sea wall at Dawlish, I have added a couple of pictures taken there in early March 2015. One is of a Class 59 hauled engineers train; the other shows progress on sea wall repairs. The Author's Choice picture is also at Dawlish. Taken on a stormy day in October 2011, it shows the RHTT (leaf clearing train) traversing the section of line that was destroyed in 2014. The 2 new pictures are in the "2015 Pictures" section of the Rail gallery.

KEEP CALM! MORE PICTURES WILL SOON BE HERE!

Posted by DjI

I have been away on the other side of the world for a while; hence, the lack of new images on here. Now I am back, I will be preparing pictures from my recent adventures in Hong Kong, New Zealand and the lovely Cook Islands. Keep logging on, they will be here soon!

Yes, DjIPiX is up and running again! After a break to sort out the image quality issues, have a holiday, enjoy the UK's best summer for 7 years, and a few other things, the site has finally been updated. The 2013 Pictures gallery has been removed and completely reloaded with pictures right through the year, up to early October. Please look and enjoy! In the coming weeks, a new gallery, with images from our summer holiday in Switzerland will be added. Update news will appear here.


News Update

Posted by DjI

If you are wondering what is happening with the site, and why there are 4 identical pictures of a 47/90/coach combo in the 'Latest Images Added' section and 2013 Gallery, I will explain..


Following some issues with picture quality deteriorating during upload, which have occurred since I bought a new PC at the end of 2012, the Webmaster and I did some experiments (hence the repeated photo). We think that it is sorted; certainly the 1920 x 1280 upload is a lot clearer than the first version uploaded. As a result of this, the 2013 Pictures gallery may disappear soon, in order that it can be reloaded. My Webmaster is a busy man; this may take a bit of time to do, so please be patient. Thank you.


Update 2 of 2013

Posted by DjI

It's been a long wait, but, hopefully, worth it. Although I haven't updated this website since January, I've still been taking pictures. The result is a bumper update, dating back to February. There's all sorts for you to enjoy including steam, diesel, and electric, taken at a variety of locations.


Update 1 of 2013

Posted by DjI

Happy New Year everybody! Our first update of the year tidies things up with some final uploads to the 2012 Pictures gallery. In early December I took some pictures at Forder Viaduct near Saltash, Cornwall, and then at the nearby Royal Albert Bridge. From just before Christmas, there are pictures of a different 67 on Chiltern Railways' trains and diverted Virgin Voyagers at Princes Risborough. The gallery finishes up with pictures taken at a landslip on the Devon seawall section of railway. There is also a very modest start to a new 2013 Pictures gallery with a shiny red DBS 66 at Princes Risborough


UPDATE 11 of 2012

Posted by DjI

A small update which features the sad sight of Margate Signal Box being demolished and some shots from a productive session in the sunshine at Hinksey, Oxford. The latter includes a variety of trains and liveries.


UPDATE 10 of 2012

Posted by DjI

This update sees additional photos added to the Buses section of the site. The former "Buses Companies: East Kent" gallery has become a "Buses in Kent" gallery with the addition of pictures of Maidstone & District vehicles, all taken in the 1990s, when the company still had interesting liveries. The Trains side of the site is updated also, with some additions to the "2012 Pictures" gallery. These include "Eurosheds" on the MML RHTT, 47s and 66s at Oxford, and a Pendolino drag on the WCML.


UPDATE 9 of 2012

Posted by DjI

I start this blog and update with reference to the 'Author's Choice' picture, below. It is my tribute to the LUL A60 and A62 Stock trains that finished in service at the end of September 2012. As someone born a few years before their introduction, and who grew up in Betjeman's 'Metroland', I have used these trains for commuting, business and pleasure throughout their working lives. Like that other icon of London travel, the Routemaster bus, I am sad to see them go. However, things move on, and the delivery of their replacements, the S Stock, present good photographic opportunities, particularly after dark. As an example of this, the latest update to the '2012 Pictures' gallery of this site features a couple of time exposures showing the GBRf liveried Class 20s on an S Stock delivery train. This update also features steam and diesel in Devon, an Arriva 67, some shots at London Marylebone, the first RHTT shots of 2012 and a few others.


UPDATE 8 of 2012

Posted by DjI

The first update to the site for 2 months. Thanks to dreadful weather in July (except for a few days at the end), and time spent in August watching the tremendous London 2012 Olympics, both, on TV, and, attending events. Finally, towards the end of August there was some better weather, and some things to photograph. So, yet another varied update from Devon, London and Bucks with steam, freight and a Cable Car!


UPDATE 7 of 2012

Posted by DjI

This update features pictures from the whole month of June. Some were taken in the first week when Britain was celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II; however, my attention has been taken on most evenings by the Euro 2012 football tournament. Anyway, that is drawing to a close, which has given me time to edit and upload another mixed bag of pictures to the '2012 Pictures' gallery. They include trains, and planes, in Devon, Class 20s in east Kent and, finally, a Colas 66 on new Pendolino coaches.


UPDATE 6 of 2012

Posted by DjI

A big update to the '2012 Pictures' gallery of the Rail section. The sunshine has shone in late May, so the camera has been out. It has captured a Network Rail Test Train with DBS Class 66s at Princes Risborough and Wendover, some late evening pictures of freight and passenger (ECS, actually) at Risborough, and a selection of shots representing DBS, GBRf, Freightliner and 2 passenger TOCs in the Fens.


UPDATE 5 of 2012

Posted by DjI

Not too much photography during April due to the lousy weather. In fact, I have been readying some old bus slides for scanning, so that more images can be added. However, a trip to Devon for the May Day Bank Holiday and a nice weekend over the 12/13th May enabled some new shots to be taken. So we have a picture from my first trip over the Gunnislake branch, a Diamond Jubilee HST at Dawlish, some freight variety (with bonus 37s thrown in) at Worting Junction, and my first DBS 'Super Tug'! All in the '2012 Pictures' gallery of the 'Rail' section.


UPDATE 4 of 2012

Posted by DjI

The '2012 Pictures' Gallery updated with another mixed bunch of new images from March and April. A Royal 67, the Tesco Express, and steam and diesel at the SDR Easter Gala.


UPDATE 3 of 2012

Posted by DjI

First update in a while due to a holiday and a busy time at home. A mixed bunch of new photos in the 2012 Pictures gallery. Steam and diesel in Devon, a unit near Southampton, and Chiltern Railways' Class 67s in some nice spring sunshine.


Update 2 of 2012

Posted by DjI

More good weather, more DRS action, so another update; featuring 37s on an NR Test Train at Princes Risborough. Also, something different; a Virgin Atlantic A-340 on final approach to LHR.


UPDATE 1 of 2012

Posted by DjI

HAPPY NEW YEAR! This website recorded just over 450,000 hits for 2011. Thank you all for looking. The first update of 2012 includes 2011's last picture; Tornado at Princes Risborough. It also features the first pictures in the new "2012 Pictures" gallery. These feature 66206 on a "unit drag" and DRS 47828 on the Northern Belle; both at Cheddington. Just for a change, the Authors Choice features a bus picture.


 


 


 


 


Update 17 of 2011

Posted by DjI

For Update 17 I have added a new category in the Railways gallery; Class 50. This includes pictures from 1974, when the 50s first appeared on the Western Region, up to the end of their BR service in the 1990s. We see them on passenger, freight, parcels, a milk train, and even in a light engine move with “Sarah Siddons”. The ‘Authors Choice’ picture has been changed to one featuring Minster signalbox in East Kent, which will be closed in late December 2011.


Update 16 of 2011

Posted by DjI

This update mainly features steam and RHTTs; The former includes a King and a Britannia at Dawlish and a Castle at Princes Risborough. We see the latter at Dawlish, on the Exmouth branch, and at Brill Tunnel. There is also a green 47, and trains getting pounded by rough seas on the sea wall at Dawlish.

A varied update from late September and the first half of October. We have diesel and electric from DBS, Freightliner, Colas, Southeastern, LUL and Chiltern. First views of 2011's RHTTs, and even a DC-3 Dakota! As it's RHTT time again, the Author's Choice shows DRS 20s on the Essex RHTT in 2007.


Update 14 of 2011

Posted by DjI

Another big update. I have finally finished uploading pictures of my trip to Canada and the US this Spring; the images can be found in the "Canada & USA 2011" gallery. A new 'Author's Choice' celebrates this. More pictures also added to the "2011 Pictures" gallery. These include a shot of the new through line at Princes Risborough in action and some pictures from a day out on the Isle of Wight.


UPDATE 13 of 2011

Update 3 of 2011

Posted by DjI

You wait ages, then 2 updates come together! Diversions due to railway engineering last weekend gave the opportunity of photographing trains past the semaphore signals and box at Kew East Junction, so I took advantage. Photos in the '2011 Pictures' gallery.


Finally! Update 2 of 2011

Posted by DjI

A long time since the last update; however, I have been busy scanning and editing old slides for a new 'Southern Units' gallery, which is now available for viewing. This features pictures of Southern Region emu's and demu's from the early 1980s to the post privatisation era. Some new shots from the last few months have been added to the '2011 Pictures' gallery


1st Update of 2011

Posted by DjI

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE. A slightly late update with the addition of a '2011 Pictures' gallery, which includes loco hauled action and diverted HSTs on the, once quiet, Chiltern Line.


Christmas Eve Update

Posted by DjI

A single addition to the '2010 Pictures' gallery. An image showing Chiltern Railways' loco-hauled service.


A HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL


Snowy Update: 20 December 2010

Posted by DjI

A small update featuring more engineering work on the Chiltern Line and units in the heavy snow that fell on 18th December.


Huge update: 5 December 2010

Posted by DjI

You wait ages, then 45 bus photographs come along together!! The bus side of the website has been a bit neglected, recently, so I have added a lot of photographs to the Buses in Bucks & the Chilterns gallery.


Update: 28 November 2010

Posted by DjI

Another mini-update, and another Network Rail test train. This time hauled by Class 73s in East Kent.


Update: 16 November

Posted by DjI

A mini-update with a picture of Network Rail 31s at Princes Risborough. Also, a new Author's Choice - picture of the train taking newly weds Charles and Diana on their Honeymoon in July 1981. Appropriate for the day that their eldest son announced his engagement!


Update: 8 November 2010

Posted by DjI

There has been 3 days of engineering work on the railway at Princes Risborough, between 5 - 7 November 2010. The latest update shows a series of progress photos.


Update: October 26th

Posted by DjI

Another varied update with locos and units from DBS, DRS, GBRf, Freightliner and London Underground. Pictures include old and new Met line stock and the Autumn RHTT trains on the Chiltern lines. Also, a new Author's choice.


Update - at last!!! 1 October 2010

Posted by DjI

There has not been much activity on this site for a while. This is mainly due to me being away for nearly a month on our trip to southern Africa. This update includes; a picture from the C&PRRA gala in August, just before I left, some pictures taken at Victoria Falls station in Zimbabwe, and engineering action in connection with project Evergreen 3 at Princes Risborough


Update 19 July 2010

Posted by DjI

A small, but varied update, with 2 GW steam locos, WSMR, Chiltern Railways, DRS 20s working for GBRf, and new LUL stock; all in my local area!


Updated Author's Choice: 1976 - A Western in Devon

Posted by DjI

Having had a wonderful weekend in Devon at the end of June, during which I photographed 'Western Champion' on the famous sea wall, it seemed appropriate to make the latest 'Authors Choice' picture a '1000'. There is another parallel; currently summer 2010 is turning out to be a dry one like 1976. Whether there will be a drought and the appointment of a 'Minister of Rain', as there was that year, we will see!


Update 2 July 2010

Posted by DjI

A big update this time! We start off with some photos from an evening at Oxford Station. Then, loads of photos from a superb long weekend with glorious weather in South Devon. Lots of shots from the famous Dawlish sea wall.


Update: 18 June 2010

Posted by DjI

Some more sunny weather, so an update with a couple of pictures; a Deltic at Oxford and another shot of 70001 on the WCML. Also, a change of Author's choice, with a picture of a smoky Alco loco in Arizona.


Update: 8 June 2010

Posted by DjI

Just a couple of new pictures from a brief photographing session at Cow Roast, between Tring and Berkhamsted, which provided 2 freights in 5 minutes; the second featuring DRS 37s!


Update: 1st June 2010

Posted by DjI

A small update with a shot of 66712 at Great Missenden on an engineering train. The loco's livery may change soon with the sale of GBRf to Eurotunnel.


Updated Author's Choice - Farewell 'Slammers'!

Posted by DjI

In tribute to the trains which were withdrawn from service last weekend, I have changed the 'Authors Choice' photo to show a 4CIG emu on the Lymington branch, taken in May 2009. Further pictures in the '2009 Pictures' gallery.


Update

Posted by DjI

A small update including a couple of time exposures at Princes Risborough; one featuring Class 20s on a delivery of new Underground stock. Also a DRS Class 47 hauled football special.


Big Update

Posted by DjI

Some good, sunny, weather in April 2010, so lots of photography opportunities. As a result, 14 new images added to the '2010 Pictures' gallery. Shots from Cow Roast on the WCML, East Kent, and a day photographing freight around London.


Easter USA update!

Posted by richard

I went to New York for Easter 2010. Some railway photography was achieved and the results are in the '2010 Pictures' gallery.


Update

Posted by DjI

A new update with, firstly, some pictures from earlier in March that I forgot at the previous update (old age setting in!). These were taken at Princes Risborough and feature DBS liveried 67018 and EWS 67002 as substitutes on WSMR and a new PW working on the Chiltern Line. The second batch of pictures were taken when I went out for a double headed oil train on the GW mainline. The final pictures were taken on a trip to Cheshire and include my first Class 70 shots and a GBRf working.


 


 


Update

Posted by DjI

First update of '2010 Pictures' gallery since January. This probably reflects the lousy February weather. March has started better, and I have added shots of 'Princess Elizabeth', a Freightliner 66, and several SWT units, which were taken while I waited for a Class 73 hauled train that never turned up.


New category, Cornish Railways, added

Posted by DjI

I had 2 enjoyable holidays in Cornwall during 2009; in particular over Christmas. As I have a good selection of railway pictures from Cornwall over many years, I decided to create a gallery illustrating the, often, unique railway scene down there. There is a particular focus on the 1980s, with large logo 50s, red stripe 37s, and loco hauled trains to Newquay.


Update

Posted by DjI

A new gallery, '2010 Pictures' added to the site. A variety of pictures to start it off with WSMR at Haddenham, Virgin's loco-hauled 'Pendo' replacement, a diverted liner on the GWML, and Freightliner coal at Croome Perry.


UPDATE

Posted by DjI

The final pictures have been added to the '2009 Pictures' gallery. These include a last look at the loco-hauled Chiltern RHTT, some nice steam in the snow on the C&PRRA, and a collection of shots from a lovely Christmas holiday in Cornwall.


Automatic updates are now available on Twitter at www.twitter.com/djipix


Update

Posted by DjI

The RHTT (Railhead Treatment Trains, or leaf clearers) have provided some interest on the Chiltern Lines this autumn. This latest update has pictures of the new 66 hauled RHTT and the venerable Chiltern Railways DMU RHTT.


Update

Posted by DjI

News came through that the first delivery  train of LUL's new S Stock would be passing through Princes Risborough with 20189 and 20227 providing traction on 20 October 2009. As it would be after dark (23:30, in fact) I did some swotting up on night photography and RAW images in Kim Fulbrook's excellent book "A guide to digital railway photography". The result is the latest addition to the '2009 Pictures' gallery.


Updates

Posted by DjI

A couple of small updates this week with photographs of the loco-hauled RHTT train that is currently running on the Chiltern lines.


NEW SUB-CATEGORY!

Posted by DjI

The Buses side of the site has been neglected for a while, especially as I don't take too many bus photographs these days. However, I have added a new sub-category for Buses in Bucks & the Chilterns. I want it to reflect the bus scene of my local area; in particular the many changes that have taken place since I moved to the area in 1985, mainly due to privatisation. Photographs, which are all scans of transparencies, will be added over the coming days and weeks.


Update

Posted by DjI

A couple of railtours in the locality over recent Saturdays; what a pity the weather didn't play ball. Still, I've included the pictures, which feature 37s and a 47. There's also a 66 on a departmental.


Update

Posted by DjI

A mixed bag of updates; Steam on the Icknield Line, trains in Venice and a Javelin emu on the Isle of Thanet.


Update

Posted by DjI

Pictures taken during a week's holiday in Cornwall have been added.


Latest Update 4 July 2009

Posted by DjI

Even though the long, sunny, evenings recently have been conducive to photography, they are not ideal for sitting in front of a PC, editing and uploading. Now things have cooled off a bit, this update has been prepared with new pictures (in the 2009 gallery) from 3 trips over the last 10 days or so.
