Oooh this Portrait of a Black Duchess is a fine one, Alan - LIKE LOTS!! Very sleek and slinky and I would love to hear how she sounds! Excellent photo Y*.

You are into locomotives and I am into Hippo's (at the moment). I wonder what that says about us..?

Here is a link just for you!

If you have time, perhaps you might like to read my reply to your comment about the Hidden Hippo in the previous photo? ((o;

Warmest greetings, Puffa-Billy,

It's a fine loco Alan, every part is in pristine condition..Superb shot and one for my faves! I'd like to see it pulling a full load up Shap..awesome sight I reckon.

I missed the Tornado today..It was having a rest at Grosmont!

Best wishes pal!
