I’m a member of a small heritage railway, the Chinnor and Princess Risborough Railway not too far from Aylesbury and the M40 cutting.
To be honest, I rarely get round to doing any volunteering, but it’s a small, friendly railway, with a cute station and 7 miles worth of track through the Chilterns to Princess Risborough.
Last year, as a fund raising effort, the Railway started doing Photography Course days.
It occurred to me that there might be an opportunity to do something with drones, so I sent a tentative “What do you think?” email to the board. I wasn’t sure what to expect, given safety considerations that apply not only to drone pilots but also to working railways.
Anyway, the railway photographer has responded positively. They’ve suggested doing something during the next photo day which also coincides with a Diesel Gala, on Friday 16th March. Not much use for me, sadly, as I’m all out of holiday at work, but is anybody else interested? The weather might be a problem in March as well, mind you, might be a problem anytime I suppose. Or if something could be done at a weekend, is it worth pursuing?

All thoughts appreciated.
