Thanks Roger. Yes, the big advantage of sing a mobile ‘phone for photographing the railway is being able to get down to track level.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I wonder if the red text on the van draws the eye too much. And it would have been good to glimpse the rest of the Fox pub!

I've only tried a few shots with a phone, hoping to exploit the fact that the lens can be got closer to 'ground' level than my camera allows. But focus stacking is a bit of a problem! It's worth having a think about lighting too. I use £5 outdoor security lights, up to four of them, on cheap stands.

Roger, the lettering on the moving van appears orange/brown on my monitor and blends perfectly with the colors around it.

I only use my phone for photography when it's not convenient to use the DSL. The DSL is set on Auto and I don't have a clue what focus stacking is! I only photograph for a record of where I've been and, what I've done. I bought a good camera to photograph my paintings - with mixed results. I'm happy to share my pictures but haven't done enough photography to create images comparable to what I see posted here.

I found the same problem photographing my paintings. So hard to get even lighting and to get the camera lined up square with the picture. I finished up using a scanner, doing a section at a time and then combining the parts using Photoshop. It took ages, but gave really good results. Some examples here: http://www.roger-beckwith.co.uk/railways/intro.htm.

Another scenic picture today. The farmhouse and barn have appeared here before, not to mention in the NGS Journal and RM, but here's a closer view.

Wonderful paintings. Apart from the trains, the roses are my favorits.

Do pictures of railways have to include trains?! Definitely not, methinks. Here's Wrenton as such a small station would have been most of the time. Some passengers waiting patiently but not a train in sight.

You are so right Roger. Seems so peaceful without the loco being present.
She who must be obeyed says I am spending too much time on this forum. I love her dearly but what does she know?

Looks fabulous.

Looks fabulous.

Agreed!  Like passengers waiting on both platforms and the starting signal having been pulled off.  The anticipation...

A brilliant photograph; thank you very much indeed.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1930s to the 1950s.

I think summat, a down train, has come and gone. Passengers still wait on the up platform and three cars are leaving the car park, presumably carrying passengers from the recently departed train. Must be Wrenton's rush hour!

Well, they've had a long wait but at last the southbound passengers have a train...
