Excellent composition. I love the angle from which you took this. An exciting, busy station, no doubt. There is a lot going on here to enjoy. Very nice indeed!

Best regards from GA,

Hi Mary Alice,
Thanks so much for looking, Yes, this works is a fascinating place. For the best part of 150 years they have been building and maintaining the little engines that work on the line. These two were built here, as were others before them. The heavy machine shop is off to the left, full of lovelly old tools!

Alan, you are not too far from the mark with your Thomas observations. Occasionally they change the name plates on 'Britomart' to 'Tomos Bach' (Little Thomas) for childrens open days. I've got a very old picture somewhere of me driving it in that disguise.

Best Wishes to both of you! Peter

Hi Steve,

Thanks for looking. Yes, it was rather busy for September. Besides these two resting in the yard, Taliesin was out, Castell Cricieth had just taken some coal trucks & an oil tank to the harbour, and Merddin Emrys was out picture no.27057532

Best Wishes, Peter

Hi Peter it is great having the full list of my favourite photographers back on Pano it makes it so much easier to go a visiting and find such lovely shots as this ~ which goes straight into my favourites too with a Golden Star of course. Some great info in the comments above too ~ cheers nick

Hi Nick,

Thanks for the visit, and the star! It's a great honour to be called a 'favourite photographer' (or even a photographer of any description)! I suppose between, Mary Alice, Alan, Steve, and yourself we all do have a love of similar things, mostly old, and mostly powered by steam. For me the interesting thing is the different interpretations everyone manages to apply to the subject.

Best Wishes Peter

Indeed the red engine is named after another Mancunian.

Very nice shot Peter. What is that on the right of the shot, in the shed. It looks like something right out of Thomas the tank engine. Y*.

Bonsoir Ma chérie Isabelle!

vous avez les très gros yeux vifs!!!!!

Vous avez raison, ces deux sont frères. La petite locomotive bleue est «Britomart», qui va également dans le déguisement de "Tomos Bach. Il ya une photo de moi à son volant, je suis sûr que vous vous souvenez!

Meilleurs voeux
