Excellent dramatic picture. On the name plate is says the Mid-day Scot.
Les Auld: The Mid Day Scot was one of the great named trains that ran from London Euston along the West Coast line to Glasgow. The train engine was always one of the great pacific locomotives, eithe ex-LMS or BR Standards.
Super shot Les. Perfect in B&W
Les Auld: It does have a certain air about it Bill, thanks for the comment.

Good one Les. I like the way the engine is wreathed in smoke.
Les Auld: Thanks Ian, it all added to the atmosphere on the day.

Great image
Les Auld: Thanks for the comment Vintage.
Nice shot Les deserving of the tones mono treatment. It was thanks to the GCR at Loughborough that we have the Duke back in action I understand.
Les Auld: I can't remember where the restoration work was done but I do have a few pictures of it before it was fully painted in Bury. Thanks for the comment.
