The photos look like they are taken from different focal lengths can you zoom with that camera?

Amazed at the quality of the night shots.

It seems the short dead end siding off the siding the locos are in has been removed?

I am not sure what you mean in your comment Brian but no tracks have been removed since the arrival of the S/G in 1996. This train is in the short siding, they take their hoppers in with them these days.
