Good Old John Howe....

A diminutive 0-4-0 Saddle tank Locomotive on the Ribble Steam railway during the recent Steam Gala. It may be small, it would just fit in your pocket, but it was the best turned out of all the engines and one of the most attractive.

The less you have to turn out, the better you can turn it out.

Great picture, I gather there was some handy light making the flash unnecessary.
Les Auld: There was a bank of spotlights Louis. Thanks for the comment.
