Vintage is right...this is a very hard worker. It has lots of character, Les, and you did it proud.
Les Auld: Thanks Ginnie, appreciate the comment.

Les Auld: Built in 1984 Brian, thanks for the comment.

This would make a great b&w on one of your backgrounds Les
Les Auld: Did think of that Bill but then decided to leave it au-natural, thanks for the comment.
Yes, I bet this chap has a few miles on the clock. Lovely shot.

Stupid thought came to mind. If it stops pumping more water into the lock, the gate will open sooner smile Or is it the other way round?

A very grey day indeed.
Les Auld: The water from the cooling system is actually drawn in from the lock Louis so it makes no difference, thanks for the comment.
