photoblog image Embsay Shed

Embsay Shed


The Embsay and Bolton Abbey Railway is primarily an Industrial Engine based one but they do host visiting engines at different times of te year. Here the J15, 65462, is seen at the coaling stage whilst the J94, 68005, passes by from the shed area.

The J15 is an ex Great Eastern/ London North Eastern engine built in 1912. It passed into the hands of the preservationists in 1963 and is currently running at the North Norfolk railway.

68005 is not actually a British Rail engine, it was built for the War Department in 1945 and served in industrial use with the National Coal Board untill obtained by the East Somerset railway and converted to a pseudo J94 of the London and North Eastern railway. It is currently out of service at Embsay awaiting overhaul.

Love the treatment Les, your railway pictures never disappoint!

Another one of your spectacular railway shots Les and the colour popping works very well. I remember J15's and their ilk from my old spotting days in the Cambridge area when I was young.
Les Auld: I've seen the J15 on a few railways now, a fine little performer as well. thanks for the comment.

Yes, it is a great treatment - like something from a colour magazine in the '50's
Les Auld: Thanks Louis, I tried a different filter setting this time and am quite pleased with the result.
Lovely colour pop Les
