Trainspotting Photography

From my past writings, I am pretty sure many of my readers are aware about my likings towards trains.

How fascinating, very, these metallic caterpillars are. I personally love the sounds of the locomotive engines, the smell of diesel smoke they produces and of course the looks of them. These raging locomotives not only attract the passengers but also passers-by who happen to bump into them soon these powerful machines get themselves running on metal tracks.

I love trains. I spent hours sitting at a corner of either Ipoh Railway Station or much smaller station in Batu Gajah just to look at them slowing down to halt or just passing by.

In a way to appreciate these diesel-powered locomotives, I utilized my photography skill to capture these beasts in the form of digital photographic images. Do enjoy some of my best collections and feel free to comment.


Taken at the Old Railway Station, Kuala Lumpur, this mixed-goods line was bound for Ipoh, hauling containers and liquid-chemical tanks.

This 25-class locomotive had just finished its job for the day and was left to rest at one of the sidings in Ipoh station. The containers that framed the locomotive were Prai Sugar's.

The Express Senandung Langkawi, bound for Kuala Lumpur, was passing this hallway at night.

The latest collection in the series of diesel locomotives, the 29-class (or twenty-niner I call it) proves to be as powerful as it looks like. This loco was hauling empty Prai Sugar containers up North for refilling.
