Ma chérie Isabelle Merci! Vous êtes très drôle, et dire des choses intéressantes! Vous aimez "Cette Humidité"! Ce fut le même jour que image no.41589245. Plus tard ce jour-là il pleuvait beaucoup! Je n'aimais pas ça, je suis très humide! vous avez les très gros yeux vifs!!!!! Le nom sur le front appartient au train, pas de la locomotive. Par exemple, dans image no.25756969, le train est appelé "North Wales Coast Express", mais la locomotive est "Princess Elizabeth"

Meilleurs voeux

Cracking shot and another double header too ~ Ok so another Golden Star and like again too too

Hi Steve and Nick, Thanks very much to both of you for the visit the 'likes' and the 'stars'. Considering it was the last train of the day, in failing light and pouring rain, your praise makes getting soaked worthwhile!

Nick, bonus points for spotting the second locomotive, it is the Southern S15, No 825. Isabelle, je pense que votre très gros yeux vifs sont fatigues! Vous n'avez pas le voir!

Best Wishes Peter

Elegant locomotive.

Hi Alex,

Thanks for visiting. This locomotive is almost two years old. I have another picture of it on it's first day of public service. Yes, we still have steam locomotives running in England!

Best wishes Peter

Hi Peter A nice shot here I see it isdouble headed what was the other Loco I have not been to this location it must be out towards Newbridge.A GS and "like" .Best wishes Alan

Hi Alan, thanks very much for the visit, the star, and the like! The other loco is the S15 without smoke deflectors. The location is just by the road crossing. It's OK for a rainy day because you can sit in the car, and you are much closer than Moorgates. Down side is that the loco isn't working, hence no exhaust.

Best wishes Peter

A rainy day, but a steam-train with two locos - it's a good day (and a very nice picture!).

Hi Josef,

Thank you again for your interest. The day started out very well with picture no.41589245, picture no.41589264, and picture no.88708150, then the weather got steadily worse.

This is a good spot to watch trains when it rains, because it is possible to sit in the car until the crossing gates open.

Best Wishes Peter

Hi Steve,

Thank you again for looking, and for the appreciation. I think the story of this one is pretty much like I said to Josef above, a nice place to wait on a rainy day! I think NYMR is doing a gala soon, but I haven't given any thought to going or not. Have you any ideas?

Best Wishes Peter

Steve. D on April 14, 2014

Hello Peter i think Alan may have mentioned something about a Gala this month ?
