Very beautiful shot! Greetings finek
Hi finek thank you very much
Nice capture, you have a nice gallery YS
Hi © BraCom Thank you for your kind words and thanks for the YS I'm glad you like my gallery.
Hi Bruce Thanks, I agree it has lovely lines and it is a little powerhouse alright. I was told by one of the engine drivers that the wheel configuration on this engine enables it to pull heavier weights compared to the larger 3 big wheelers like 34067 Tangmere which got stuck 1/4 of a mile behind this Train.
very beautiful shot

Hi -NeveN- thank you very much
I remember such locomotives, now only you can see the railway museum Yours Andrew
Hi Andrzej Brudziński. We are lucky in England. We have a large number of Steam Railways still running and a new Steam loco on the main line, called Tornado. see it in the link Steam Locomotives below. Tone:)))
One can see the likeness with the lighter 2-6-2 Prairie class tank locomotive..both designed by Mr Collet!
nice pic Tone! >>>>L<<<<<
Hi Jim Yes it is very similar to the Prairie class. I didn't know they were both built by Mr Collett. Goliath is the Loco that rescued West Country class 4-6-2 loco 34067 Tangmere, a few hundred yards behind this spot. At the Waterside Holiday Park. Goliaths 2-8-0 gives it excellent traction on this steep gradient. Easily pulling the Torbay Express to safety. Thanks for the >>>>L<<<<<
