Group Portrait with 461—April 2001

On 13 April, 2001, I traveled with the Railway Preservation Society of Ireland to Mullingar, where I exposed a roll of Kodak 120 Tri-X using a Rolleiflex Model T.

Among the photos I made was this group portrait featuring RPSI’s steam locomotive 461 on the Mullingar turntable with an array of Irish Rail and RPSI crew and members.

If I recall correctly, RPSI’s Kevin Walker and Denis McCabe assisted with arranging the group portrait.

Many years earlier, I learned a trick for getting large numbers of people to all look at the camera at the moment of exposure.

I think I was pretty successful here.
