You'll have gathered from the title of this posting that Bern the Lens has been in touch again. In fact, he dropped into the office a couple of days ago to hand around his Christmas cards.
This pair of shots are unlike anything I've seen from everyone's favourite railway photographer and local historian, take a peek - I think you'll agree that the conditions made for a marvellous sight and that Bern's eye for a great photo is in terrific form.
As always, I'll let him tell the story in his own words...
If you enjoyed these shots as much I did - take a look at some of Bern's other work; a vast library of photos taken over the years: click here or use the permanent link on the right hand side of these pages (under "links").
