Wo-ho - I get to be the first to view! Great shot of a lovely old lady. Is that fellow in the loud shirt taking you picture? Maybe he's just opening the window...
Hi AXOTA Nice shot Jim I guess you must have been up on Larpool Viaduct its a great vatage point from up there well taken its one for the favs Jim.Best wishes Alan
Hey Jim well I comment on some of Alan's trains and I gotta comment on this beauty. Like where you were to capture this one Jim, good capture and a smart looking train.:)
AnonymousKiwi~~~I'll tell uncle John you thought his shirt was loud Lisa ;>)
top spotter~~~Of all people I knew you would have this location sorted in a jiffy Alen ;>) They are working the heart out of this engine, and the strain is beginning to show..Not quite the tidy looking loco she appears from the side Alan...Just take a look at the top sides..rust, flaking paint and dirt everywhere! Thanks for that Y* pal...Coming from No 1 Pano train enthusiast I take a lot of pride in that ;.)
Lesley Rigby ---I noticed that the fireman is charging the fire grate..just look at that fire door..wide open ;>)
Steve Drury...when I first started posting stuff on here over two years ago, I had no idea that I would be visiting amazing sites like yours and Alan's where I could feast my eyes on unimaginable 21st century images of my favourite locos..So I take much pleasure in that Y*, I'm honoured pal ;>)
Sarah O...We are fortunate in having these unique events captured so faithfully by the two guys above Sarah..I have always loved the age of steam..Long before diesel trains were in regular use, these Goliaths of the iron road thundered across the English countryside, criss crossing, leaving their tell-tale traces of hot steam and coal dust in their path!
The railways were an integral part of life in the UK, serving virtually every community, regardless of distance, time or importance..Railways were part of the essential fabric of life..They were utterly reliable, competitively priced and went everywhere. It took only the stroke of a politicians pen to serve the death sentence on almost 60% of the UKs comprehensive rail network..A dark deed that I will never forget..nor forgive.
The photo was taken from a high vantage point known locally as Larpool Viaduct The photo in the link was taken from almost exactly the same place as the locomotive in this picture ;>)
Thanks for all your feedback guys ;>)

Great, great shot! Thank you for sharing.
Greetings from Tokyo, Japan.
Throbbing ground and Hissing steam,
The Blood & Custard carriages dragging behind,
76079 to Battersby courses,
I wonder what equivalent that could be in Horses?
Fantastic shot Jim on full zoom I see the ballast trembling.
You must have a rather tall tripod!
