    Thanks again.

    Bowzart, Mabman and Martin,

    Thanks all for the added info - I am now getting very keen to start developing in fact I can hardly 'restrain' myself - sorry for thr pun.

    Rodinal was my favourite dev to push TriX to 1600. I thought it might do a reasonable job in lifting contrast.

    Now I have a choice of four plus the benzotriazole addative.

    As far as I remember there is one frame I have been lamenting the loss of, lets hope it is not on one of the test rolls.

    This is one on TriX at 1600 in the 1970's. (are images allowed?)

    Lovely stuff that Tri-X @ 1600 in Rodinal isn't it? Not the best for portraits of women, but men seem to like the look of their faces on photographs from negs shot & processed in this way.

    I developed a 30+ year roll of FP4 this summer, using HC-110B and 50% more time, and got printable negs.

    As far as your 10 year old film, I would suggest HC-110B and around 25% more time. The base fog will be higher, but I'll bet you get good printable images.

    I found a roll of Plus X from 1981 in my old Flexaret TLR this summer -- quite shocking, as it was I who somehow left it there. I developed it in HC110 1+63 for about 10% more time than I usually would and got recognizable images. The background density was higher, and something looked a bit funky about the grain, but they would be printable. The results definitely don't look as good as an earlier roll of the same film taken and processed in 1981, but they're salvageable. Of course faster films may suffer more, I've no experience with that. The shots were taken with flash, documenting a project in a basement workshop, and aren't exactly optimum to begin with. The whole experience was a bit mind-boggling, actually -- 27 year old latent exposures.
