There were two LMS locomotives amongst the GWR gems at the Birmingham Railway Museum Open Day. T6201, Princess Elisabeth, looking quite fine in her crimson livery, provided the motive power for the demonstration train on the short running line.

Lovely, Les. I thought that this was one of the locos that had spent some of its time at Butlins but turns out not to be the case. She's very attractive, even when seen in b&w. I like the atmosphere you've created here.
Les Auld: She did look good, I think the one at Butlins was Princess Margaret Rose,on display at Pwllheli camp. Thanks for the comment.
An excellent shot Les, it looks good in B&W. I sent the link for your shot yesterday to me friend who thoroughly enjoyed it and some of your archive that he looked at. He is off to Cornwall tomorrow to help on the Helston Branch revival scheme, this link to his website will tell you why. http://www.users.waitrose.com/~gowenkj/
Les Auld: Glad he enjoyed the pictures Brian, the Helston project looks very interesting and I hope it goes well.
Classic shot.
Les Auld: Seemed to work, thanks for the comment John.
