The Mince Pie Special

 

The ex LMS Stanier Balck 5, 45337, leaves Ramsbottom on the East Lancashire Railway   with the Boxing Day mid-day Mince Pie Special. A grey day with snow still on the ground and plenty of smoke and steam around.

I was just looking at my steam train images yesterday from the Dordrecht Steam Festival last May, Les. How did you know? I like the feel of selective coloring here, even if there's none on a gray day.
Les Auld: Just a touch of desaturation on this Ginnie, thanks for the comment.
