Nice shot David.
I still keep looking for a sign of an (old) railroad, but so far I could not spot it.

The old railway station is out of shot to the left of those green vans.

I’m not aware of that.  The old building is still there and quite decorative.   I will have to try and get a shot if it.

Do you know if there is a place where you can see old aerial photo's?
A bit like this one.

Thanks!
I have created an account and that gives the option to zoom in considerably.

It does look like there could have been one track going to the river, but I see a stop buffer in that track, so I'm not sure if that was the case.

Interesting. Surprising how big the ships are that run in there (and are on the ground half the time)...

If you see where the orange van is bottom right,   that whole area used to be boats that were being repaired out of the water.   The flats in front of that van are quite new and the boat repairs stopped when they were built.

The station is still there,   but the track is long gone,  but there are sections of the railway where you can still walk along the raised section where the tracks once were.

There has been talk about reconnecting the line,   but I doubt that will happen.

Usually it is very expensive and often close to impossible due to changes in the landscape (buildings etc).
I just wish they had not cleared all these old railways, since they would have been handy in many cases now with more people.

Honestly.  That was a good day Mr B.    Currently getting battered with wind and rain.   But.  Snow is forecast overnight.

I agree.  And when they’re not being used they are great for photos.

Probably my fault.  I just took the mini2 batteries off charge and put the drone by the door ready for the morning sunrise.

I could be equally to blame, I've just spent the last couple of hours charging up every battery in sight.

Howling winds all night, and a light dusting of snow, which is already melting away

It's 4 degrees Celsius here and the winds have dropped considerably. There's a fast thaw at the moment.  Too windy for the drones, but the P2 might survive with an overcoat
