I bet you had toy trains when you were little, Les...and maybe now, too. smile I LOVE model trains. That's what this reminds me of.
Les Auld: Afraid not Ginnie, but I will admit to being a trainspotter in by youth. Thanks for the comment.
Good crisp shot and so nostalgic in b&w.
Les Auld: thanks Ian, appreciate the comment.

Aah, the days of steam. Happy nostalgia, but why is it that people never seem to remember the grime?
Les Auld: many of todays railway photographers would love a bit of grime to make it more realistic. Thanks Ellie.
Very well done ! Bravissimo ! The heavy atmosphere is perfect !
Les Auld: Thanks Zeb, the atmosphere is all down to the volounteers, every one of them.
God's Wonderful Railway. I was brought up on Castles, and Halls and Manors. Great shot Les.
Les Auld: Thanks Bill, I had to travel to Chester for the big GWR engines, those were the days.
