Thank you Steve.
Strangely, when I was sat on the fence waiting for this (first train of the day), I had planned to wait until it blocked the hut out of sight, but the adundance of black smoke stopped on the next frame, as the driver shut the regulator due to a severe slip. On balance, I thought I'd go with this one. I'm pleased that you like it. Thank you!
Thank you so much for looking at this set, they are all from the same day!
It was a special event with loads of trains and photo opportunities
I am happy that you liked them all.
As I explained to steve, this was not quite the photo I was looking for, but with smoke like that, too good to exclude!
What a nice moment!!!!!
What a special section!!!
Thanks for this pretty photo.
Warmest greetings. GGR
Thank you for visiting, and for the praise!
It makes me feel like those hours of walking over the moors are now worthwhile.
Ma chérie Isabelle,
You are right, it is a very strange scenario. The grey smoke does not really belong in this kind of scene. It is maybe more appropriate with a big heavy freight train, not a sleek racehorse like this one! But it was too good to leave out!
very nice photo!!dusan
Thank you Dusan.
It is an english tradition to admire old steam locomotives at work.
