Les Auld: Just slowing down and approaching the train Peter, thanks for the comment.
I really like that the whole photo looks almost monochrome- with the steam and the gray skies- the color of the trees subdued- but then there's that shock of red. Really nice Les!
Les Auld: All down tot he greyness of the day Elizabeth, thanks for the comment.
One of the best loved locomotives from the steam age
Les Auld: And quite a few have been preserved Bill, thanks for the comment.
Cracking shot Les, gosh how many of these have i seen, we used to call them Mickys, but i never knew why,They were always a disappointment because they weren't a 'namer', unfair really, a fine engine.
Les Auld: Truely a classic engine Frank, thanks for the comment.
Classic shot of a Black 5 Les.
Les Auld: Indeed so Brian, thanks for the comment.
