Lovely collection of photos - where did you take photo number 3815? I don't recognise the location?
You obviously had a good day.
Itís just outside Ropley on the Alresford side. Follow the path under the station footbridge alongside the miniature railway. At the end of the path there is a scrubby area before you get to a cultivated field which drops down to the road under the railway.

They have also cut back the hedging and reduced the height of the fence between the track and the path immediately outside the station so there are some quite good shots to be had there.

The first snow flurry found me in the cafe at Alresford with a plate of fish and chips.

The shop had some stock on offer so a Bachmann class G2A decided to come home with me.

Steve excellent pictures.
That would be good Brian, but which one of you would take on the role of my carer for the day?
