Why the lack of new photos?

18 May 2020 09:35 AM

As you might have noticed I haven't uploaded many photos recently - this graph really shows the decline.

Photos taken per month, until April 2020

The last time I uploaded so few photos was when I went overseas!

But luckily for you I haven't been wasting the Coronavirus lockdown - I've been still regularly updating my main blog, my Hong Kong transport and European rail spinoffs, along with uploading my backlog of non-train photos to Flickr.
