Heritage Train Site on Heritage Camera

Train Tracks Parallel

I was recently walking through the car park of the (closed) Blaenavon’s Heritage Railway Site with an Olympus 0M1n and some Ilford Kentmere400

Because of Covid19 the place is closed, which meant the trains were not running. Which is why I managed to get the above shot. I’d never trespass on live train tracks – that’s a suicidal thing to do.

Because the centre is closed there isn’t much to see apart from a pair of old carriages on display in the car park and the station – plus the tracks.

The slow decay of the carriages – rusty metal and rotting wood – was fascinating.

It may be a bit of a cliche, but black and white film paired with the slow decay of something aged really seem to work together perfectly.

When the centre reopens I will return and capture some stock in a better state of repair, but until then, the wild flowers will continue to grow on the line.
