What a gorgeous setting for this engine Les...Did you know it was going to appear at the time?
Les Auld: I did Ron, had chased it along the coast. Thanks for the comment.
What a cracking backdrop for the train Les, very well caught smile
Les Auld: The duchess and the castle, they do go together Linda, thanks for the comment.
I'd forgotten she is now in a black livery Les, not being familiar with the original one back in the 50's this looks good.
Les Auld: It does have a sense of grandeur Brian, thanks for the comment.
