He is all steamed up it seems to me. It must be the new model Ford Fiesta that has it all excited then.
Les Auld: And exciting it is Louis, thanks for the comment.

Yesterday Astrid and I were taking a walk around our citadel city of Gorinchem, Les, and at one point we were watching the freighters on their way to and from Rotterdam. I said to her that I bet some people watch the freighters like Les and other SCers watch the trains. I liked that thought. And here you are, case in point!
Les Auld: Trains boats and Planes Ginnie, they are all worth watching. Thanks for the comment.
A classic locomotive and a classic shot
Les Auld: One of the great classics Bill, thanks for the comment.
Good shot Les.
Les Auld: Thanks Linda.
A smokey sooty dirty noisy grimy greasy steaming heap of shuddering iron.

Les Auld: All of those and more Richard, thanks for the comment.
I haven't seen one of these since visiting the Midland Railway Centre, Butterley years ago. A fine shot Les.
Les Auld: Butterly is the home of the Princes Brian, thanks for the comment.
Straight out of an Agatha Christie novel...nice one Les.
Les Auld: Complete with a tame murderer Bernard, thanks for the comment.

Superb, Les. The steam adds to the atmosphere and I like how ypu got the crew looking out.Do you know if this loco was semi-dereleict at one of the Butlin holiday camps for a while? I'm sure I've clambered on to its footplate.
Les Auld: I believe it was Alan, I vaguely remember seeing pictures of it there. Thanks for the comment.
