A splendid shot Les. I was only thinking in that cold weather how I used to see these Black 5s arriving from the north at Bristol in the 1962-3 winter: covered in snow & ofter many hours late. But they always made it!
Les Auld: Great workhorses Chris, I saw many of them around the North West in their final days. Thanks for the comment.
The power of steam..Wonderful Les.
Les Auld: The power indeed Ron,thanks for the comment.

A grand old dame - or does one refer to it in the male gender? Great picture with a fitting conversion.
Les Auld: may be old but recently rebuilt and in fine fettle, possible male though. Thanks for the comment Louis.
