Thank you Phil. I don't have many of the SDJR because it closed too early, but I think I may come up with some West Country loco shots when I find them. I've scanned half my slides so only about 500 to go.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with. I think that I have some more negatives to scan, but they are mainly oil-boxes.
