Beyer Peacock 2-2-2, 1862, in Santarém railway museum. It was a pity that the background got so blown out due to harsh light in the museum.



Simplicity itself. The loco is in an earlier post :

Henschel Nº 19887, 1924, Santarém Railway Museum.

Stephenson link motion

Not as simple as the Beyer Peacock.
#3


Iberian gauge, being wider than standard gauge, gives more room. The window is set into a door - there is one on each side of the firebox.

I agree that the glare did not help, but very good images otherwise.

Thanks.
I'm totally frustrated by that glare. Harsh light is just about the norm, here.

Depending on the time of day and year, and type of weather, could these images be done on a softer lit day to help cut down on the glare?

I doubt it - few days have soft light.
The museum is in the old engine-shed. Its windows face south. The interior is painted (dirty)white and do have muslin(?) curtains. The old Beyer Peacock stands hard against that south wall so it's impossible to take from the lefthand side as I could with the Henschel. The light is patchy - bright daylight in one spot, dim electric lights in another. A real difficult setup. You can see on the shot of the Henschel wheels.

I think the only way is to fiddle with the white balance and take several thus bracketed shots in the hope of getting a decent one. However, I dare not turn up again with my camera for a third time as the lady on the door said a lot of rapid Portuguese to me the last time. As far as I understood the gist, she accused me of being from a magazine in which case I needed special permission. That's the problem if you turn up with more than a simple point-and-shoot.

Does anyone have an answer as to why American, French, German, Swiss (and almost every country's) loco builders showed all the underwear and hung everything on the outside while the Brits built locos with lean clean lines?
