On separate tracks, of course, but maybe they can still get in a kissy-kiss? smile

I've not seen 2807 in steam before Les: I have a feeling it's only just been restored - must be over 100 years old now!
Les Auld: 2807 is the oldest surviving GWR loco Chris, it returned to steam in 2010. Thanks for the comment.
A nice shot of working engines Les.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, appreciate the comment.
A fine pair of freight locomotives Les
Les Auld: More often seen hauling passengers these days Bill, thanks for the comment.
Another good capture of two great locomotives.
Les Auld: Thanks John.
