One Tri-ang class 31 loco and one Lima body (Have 2 good Lima 31's so can run the finished train on exhibition circuits so long as they are DC) have been done in this livery plus 2 brake comps and 3 comps, all coaches are non corridor surban stock and all the old 9'' Tri-ang ones. Underframes have been repared using matchsticks where required.

How are you taking the photos Ian ?  It's coming out here well out of focus - I can hardly see the first 2 shots.

If you're taking a close up, try taking a shot further away then cropping to show the bit you want.  That often works better than Macro unless you have a dedicated lens.

Using a 5 year old digital camera, but I will be honest photography is not my sytrong point, as the pictures tell all, in how bad I am, and I cannot see properly through the sight lense with my glasses on either so doing with wearing my specs, and that could be half of the problem.

Ian, there should be an "auto focus" function on the camera.

Usually, unless it's an up-market camera, the area of focus the camera reads from would be around the centre of the picture you see in the viewfinder/screen.  Point that as near as you can get to the centre of the thing you want to be in focus and then half press the release button and hold it there.  Wait a second or two without moving.  During this time, the camera will search for the point of focus and "lock on" to it.  Then fully press the button and it's done.  If you let go of the button before it's done it's lock on, you have to start again !!

Once you've downloaded the photo, use whatever photo software you normally use on the computer, crop and / or zoom in until you have the close up you need and save it.  Most photo software allows cropping or zooming in some form or other.

You shouldn't really need much in the way of eyesight - the camera does that for you just as long as you point it at the subject (I'm assuming it's a "point and shoot pocket camera, not not a DSLR. :roll:)

petermac,

Yes its the basic point and snap digital camera, but I didn't know about the double click feature when taking photographs. Will give it a try and let you know and see hopefully, the results when I next use the damn thing.

 

Ian  :cheers

It's not a double click as such Ian.  It's a half way down, hold, then fully down.  It may take some getting used to but it should work - you need a gentle touch but it's not difficult.
