Timetable of events.
Thinks to self, train approaching fast, I will take a picture for Dave Beedon (Dave likes trains)
Being tall, I hold camera at arms length above safety fence and point it at train, looking sideways at LCD screen to align picture.
Forget no.1 = the track is very close to the fence.
Forget no.2 = my arms are quite long.
Forget no.3 = trains are fast.
Train then misses camera and hand by "INCHES"
Swear to never do that again. (really, really swear)
Get told off by wife, who wishes she had a camera in her hand to get a picture of my face as I jumped back.
Go home and change underwear.
