Spot on Alan it's a beaut'..what a handsome loco, one of Stanniers' classics for sure...It is saved to my faves...Y* + L ;)

With your permission, I would like to rehash this in PS..I fancy it could look good in monochrome or sepia..I have no intention of processing or using this other than for my own personal interest.

On the subject of classics, I received an interesting comment from Roger11 which can be read just here regarding the height of British locos, I would appreciate your expertise on the subject...

Friendly greetings pal!
