I started photographing steam trains in 1965 at the age of 13. Unfortunately, for the first few months I only had a Box Brownie.
Sadly my grandfather passed away in early 1965. The benefit for me was that I managed to get his 35 mm Kodak Retinette 1A camera. At the time it was one of the better ones, and one many famous railway photographers started with.
Here are some of my pictures from the Gosford area taken at that time.
