Welcome to shutterchance, Les.

Well this super starter for ten and a classic steam train shot if ever I saw one. Perfectly composed with space for the train to move into, with the diagonal lines and the smoke from the chimney giving movement.

As a young boy, I always thought the handles on the front were the hands of a clock!

Wow! What an absolutely superb picture.

Welcome to Shutterchance smile
Classic train shot. Sort of thing I used to see in my Ian Allen Locospotters annual! Who was the painter? Hamilton Ellis orsomething like that if I recall.
Les Auld: I recall the name but not sure of his relationship with Ian Alan, I well remeber the books though. The aim was to produce a picture that could have been alomst anytime.

Thanks for the comment William
