As others see us – Pictures from Stefan Niklas Zeitvogel

I really enjoyed visiting with the Zeitvogel family who recently visited our layout when on holidays from Germany. Just from watching it was clear that¬†Stefan Niklas Zeitvogel was an excellent photographer. So, I asked if they would be kind enough to send a selection of the photos that Stefan took so that I could post them on this blog. Well, here’s the e-mail I received today:

Dear Tony,

We met when we were visiting your wonderful model train exhibition ( Roger, me and my son Stefan Niklas who loved to take photos of the trains ) .

As promised we have selected a few ones attached above and hope you will like them. 

We enjoyed the skunk train and the model train world very much.

All best wishes from Lake Constance in Germany,

Patricia, Roger and Stefan Niklas.”

As you will see below Stefan’s photos are superb. Click on any photo to see full size.
