A picture taken from the old trainroad of Adegem Belgium At the end of the year 1988, some activity was spotted along the abandoned tracks. A few railwayfanatics, already familiar with modelisme, was dreaming of doing trainstuff on the real size. Le Stoomcentrum Maldegem started their first track: the narrow gauge Maldegem - Donk (direction Bruges). Soon after that event, the activities on the main track towards Eeklo were very clear: a new touristic passengersservice was started. The volunteers purchased most of the old buildings on the site like the station, the goods depot (selled now and fully restaured) and some others.

This photo I have cropped to a better composition, but the colours are real.

I hope you like it.

Very nice composition, nice lines and nice colours, John. They are so concentrated on their work that they haven't noticed you. The background and the sky are very pleasing to look at. This is actually in my mind a true Treearth picture, but it is nice to find it here on TL.

John, excellent picture. The diagonal lines of the rust covered tracks and the position of the locomotive (rule of thirds). Excellent colors and composition !

goede compositie John proficiat

Very interesting shot, John. A fine diagonal made by the rusty tracks, and the two workers in front of the engine are well captured. Great colors. Like Per wrote, this one would have been appropriate for TE as well. Good job.

I like the colors. Very rural. I like the diagonal. This is an excellent shot, one of your very best, IMHO.

A great composition, John, with very beautiful colours. You captured the man perfectly going about their work. I too like the diagonal line of the tracks. Very well seen.

I like this setting of some workers on the line in the peaceful landscape. Well done John.

I hope you like it. YES, I like it ! John. Very well done.
Très belles couleurs, netteté au rendez-vous et toujours cette douceur dans vos photos.

A perfect illustration of how people can renovate what has been forgotten due to economical reasons. Very well framed, and, as usual in your shots, the luminous flemish light and sky are there. People working and their tools are also adding life to this image. Just two remarks... would also fit on TE, and about sharpnees (a bit too harsh). I have a ws ready.

Nice composition, showing people at work, good choice :-)

This is a charming image of everyday life, nicely composed with soft, warm, natural spring colors. I might have cropped that tiny branch to the right of the railroad signal but that is a minor point when balanced against the fine detail of your photo. I like it. It speaks well both of your skill and the camera with which you are working. With so many folks producing such fine work with the Digital Rebel I'm feeling myself getting the bug to buy one, especially as the prices keep falling. Nice job John.

choo choo... They never knew what hit them...
Very good picture. Nice colors and great scenery.

Bonsoir John
Vive le travail ...
Bien vu ces deux ouvriers qui se tournent le dos, belle oblique et couleur chaleureuse.
Beau travail

I like this photo John - the composition and colours are good, and your note completes the presentation.

Hello John,
I like this composition!
Good lines and giving a dynamic impression, the elements are well balanced!
Good colours and details, but maybe a tad too sharp..?

Hi John

Good sharpness, & the diagonal of the rail line adds superb dynamism & perspective. Tfs!
